Happy Anniversary!!

It was 6 years ago today, 72 months, Sergeant Pepper Taught the Band to Play oops wrong Fantasy Story…
No, it was 6 years ago that Colin Powell and the rest of the Usual Suspects got in front of the World Press and of course the United Nations and LIED Their Asses Off.

And set a new low standard for “honesty” in government that has scarcely been matched in our history as a species.

The Press loved it. It had Flash, It had Drama, Pathos, An Engaging story line, just like the equally fictictious Romeo and Juliet.

Plus it had the ability to sell lots of newspapers.

And T.V. airtime ad revenues.

Didn’t have any truth to it though.

Damn that damned old Left Wing Hostile Press! Always questioning and undermining Our Leaders like that!

Hard questions like “When do you want us for the next OUTRAGEOUS LIE-FEST errr Press Conference Sir?”

and “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

“May we tongue-wash your Other Boot now sir?”

Yes, the “liberal” press mercilessly grilled them.

    This is how to do block quotes.

    It also provides a link at the end where you can find the rest of the article. I was off by two days. The anniversary is tomorrow.


    The chief proponent of this hoax was Colin Powell, who presented illustrations such as this one to the United Nations on February 5th, 2003.

    This claim fell apart when it was revealed that these trailers were nothing more than hydrogen gas generators used to inflate weather balloons. This fact was already known to both the US and UK, as a British company manufactured the units and sold them to Iraq.

    Colin Powell’s speech to the UN was itself one misstatement after another. Powell claimed that Iraq had purchased special aluminum tubes whose only possible use was in uranium enrichment centrifuges. Both CIA and Powell’s own State Department confirmed that the tubes were parts for missiles Saddam was legally allowed to have. Following the invasion, no centrifuges, aluminum or otherwise were found.

    Powell also claimed to the United Nations that the photo on the left showed “Decontamination Vehicles”. But when United Nations inspectors visited the site after the invasion, they located the vehicles and discovered they were just firefighting equipment.
    Powell claimed the Iraqis had illegal rockets and launchers hidden in the palm trees of Western Iraq. None were ever found.

    Powell claimed that the Iraqis had 8,500 liters (2245 gallons) of Anthrax. None was ever found.

    Powell claimed that Iraq had four tons of VX nerve gas. The UN had already confirmed that it was destroyed. The only VX ever found were samples the US had left as “standards” for testing. When the UN suspected that the US samples had been used to contaminate Iraqi warheads, the US moved quickly to destroy the samples before comparison tests could be carried out.

    Powell claimed that Iraq was building long-range remote drones specifically designed to carry biological weapons. The only drones found were short-range reconnaissance drones.

    Powell claimed that Iraq had an aggregate of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical and biological warfare agents. Powell gave no basis for that claim at all, and a DIA report issued the same time directly contradicted the claim. No biological or chemical weapons were found in Iraq following the invasion.

    Powell claimed that “unnamed sources” confirmed that Saddam had authorized his field commanders to use biological weapons. No such weapons were ever used by the Iraqis to defend against the invasion and, of course, none were ever found in Iraq.

    Powell claimed that 122mm warheads found by the UN inspectors were chemical weapons. The warheads were empty, and showed no signs of ever having contained chemical weapons.

    Powell claimed that Iraq had a secret force of illegal long-range Scud missiles. None were ever found.

    Powell claimed to have an audio tape proving that Saddam was supporting Osama Bin Laden. But independent translation of the tape revealed Osama’s wish for Saddam’s death.

    Colin Powell’s UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as laboratories and storage areas for Saddam’s massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.

    The “presentations such as this one” references Colin Powell holding up a vial of what he claims to be Anthrax Bacilli.

    And angrily calling anybody who didn’t believe his Lies to be either Deluded or Liars.
