The Daily Beast: “Starting in 2004, some members of the George W. Bush administration and Republican lawmakers began to find evidence of discarded chemical weapons in Iraq. But when the information was brought up with the White House, senior adviser Karl Rove told them to ‘let these sleeping dogs lie.’
The issue of Iraq’s WMD remnant was suddenly thrust back into the fore this week, with a blockbuster New York Times report accusing the Bush administration of covering up American troops’ chemically-induced wounds.
To people familiar with the issue, both inside that administration and without, the blame for the cover up falls on one particular set of shoulders: Rove’s.”
Opinion: It’s important to first establish the sources.

That said, the subject of Iraq’s WMD has been beaten to death. I almost passed on the story, but after reading it, could not.
Saddam Hussein, whom we call Antichrist #8 in our book, was a rabid anti-Semite, whose primary goal was to “control Mid-East oil, control the world.”
Saddam fashioned himself as a modern-day Nebuchadnezzar dreaming of one day marching Israel back to Babylon to slaughter every last one. From there Saddam would control the world’s oil supply and complete the job that his hero Adolf Hitler started.
Beginning in 1987, Saddam used chemical weapons to wipe out 40 Kurd villages killing approximately 5000 men, women, and children,
Saddam was and still is the darling of the anti-Bush left.
It is fitting that two left-leaning publications would finally shed light on this ugly story. The relentless left-wing press hammered President Bush with a daily death count and was largely responsible for landing the anti-war candidate, Barack Obama, in the White House.
Read the story and you decide.
