Are we on the brink of finally learning for sure what happened to Saddam’s WMDs? Here’s another piece of evidence being reviewed by the re-opened House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence investigation.
SADDAM’S PERSONAL AND CONFIDENTIAL WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION TAPES TO BE UNVEILED AT THE INTELLIGENCE SUMMIT
A former military intelligence analyst, who currently works as a civilian contractor, believes he has found a cache of extremely confidential–and very shocking–audio recordings of Saddam Hussein’s office meetings. The audiotapes, which had apparently been overlooked, were found in a warehouse along with many other untranslated Iraqi intelligence files. These tapes are extremely significant, since they may be the best evidence yet of Saddam’s secret intentions concerning weapons of mass destruction.…In regard to these highly confidential audiotapes, Attorney John Loftus, President of the Intelligence Summits, recently stated that, “Saddam’s secret office recordings continued well into the year 2000. In all, they contain at least 12 hours of totally candid discussions with his senior aides. Clearly, after these tapes have been verified and corroborated, they will be able to provide a few definitive answers to some very important-and controversial-weapons of mass destruction questions.” Loftus went on to say that the contractor who found and recovered the tapes has requested that his identity remain anonymous until he makes his presentation.
According to Chairman Hoekstra:
“There are enough people coming to the committee, Sada is not the only one, saying, ‘you really ought to look under this rock.’ This gives me cause to take up the issue again”Mr. Hoekstra is one of many who believe the question of what happened to Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction is still unresolved.
Count me among the “many”.
