U.S. intelligence suspects Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction have finally been located.
Unfortunately, getting to them will be nearly impossible for the United States and its allies, because the containers with the strategic materials are not in Iraq.
Instead they are located in Lebanon’s heavily-fortified Bekaa Valley, swarming with Iranian and Syrian forces, and Hizbullah and ex-Iraqi agents, Geostrategy-Direct.com will report in Wednesday’s new weekly edition.
Then there’s the next graf. . .
U.S. intelligence first identified a stream of tractor-trailer trucks moving from Iraq to Syria to Lebaon in January 2003. The significance of this sighting did not register on the CIA at the time.
. . .which leaves unexplained why CIA chief George Tenet still has his job. Then again, I’ve been wondering about that for 17 months.
This most recent January, you’ll recall, is when the hand-wringers were wringing their hands most solemnly about giving inspections yet another chance to work. Meanwhile, CENTCOM was gearing up for war. At the same time, an entire convoy of big rigs was detected by one of our intelligence agencies, but somehow the CIA was unable to come up with almost the only reasonable explanation for it.
And now we’re faced with the prospect of chemical and/or biological weapons in the hands of Syrian, Iranian, and Lebanese terrorists — and a CIA that’s asleep at the wheel.
Heads must roll.
