Reader comment on item: About Those Iraqi WMD

Submitted by Darwin Barrett (United States), Apr 26, 2006 at 18:59

This sounds like a CYA report. Enough truth to make it plausible but probably not the real story. I suspect that Ahmed Chalabi and Iran orchestrated the WMD deception to get the west to bring down Saddam. (The enemy of my enemy is my friend). Their goal is to get the Sunnis out of power and build a Shiite theocracy. Saddam's issues with reality were a big help.
