The CIA was even able to buy 400 Borak rockets filled with pure Sarin gas. And on top of that, our troops found 5,000 WMDs that the Pentagon kept secret until last year.
The CIA is still not talking about buying WMDs in Iraq in 2005 and 2006. They do acknowledge the number and the fact that the gas was extremely active, even though it had some age on it. They refuse to discuss specifics.
That led to more discoveries including one cache of 2600 rockets armed with chemical weapons. At the time, Jarrod Lampier, a now retired Army major said that he was ordered to make a statement downplaying the find:
“’Nothing of significance’ is what I was ordered to say.”
The Times found 17 servicemen and 7 Iraqi policemen who were injured by these weapons and it was discovered that American soldiers found it difficult to impossible to get treatment for injuries not recognized by the Pentagon.
In 2008 MSNBC reports the US removed 550 metric tons of yellowcake (Used to make nuclear weapons) from Iraq. This is the same yellowcake Joe Wilson, husband of Valerie Plame said Saddam never tried to get.The piece ends with
