War and Terror: Iraq's Alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction|

CHICAGO (NFTF.org) -- Despite the U.S. having secured military control in Iraq, the Bush administration has not yet uncovered Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction. Before the conflict, the Bush administration frequently claimed that they had evidence proving Iraq was hiding massive quantities of weapons of mass destruction; to date, these weapons have not been found, if they do indeed exist.
There are still no signs of Iraq's biological weapons materials capable of producing "over 25,000 liters of anthrax," as President Bush accused in his State of the Union Address. There are also no signs of Saddam Hussein's materials capable of producing "more than 38,000 liters of botulinum toxin."
Doubts have been raised on U.S. "intelligence officials [who] estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent."
The President also stated that "U.S. intelligence indicates that Saddam Hussein had upwards of 30,000 munitions capable of delivering chemical agents." The President argued that "Saddam Hussein has not accounted for the remaining 29,984 of these prohibited munitions."
Other than these accusations, the President argued that the "British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa." But this report turned out to be fraudulent and forged.
The President also argued that Iraq has "attempted to purchase high-strength aluminum tubes suitable for nuclear weapons production." Yet the IAEA and the U.N. has refuted these claims, saying that the tubes could only be used for rockets, and not in the creation of nuclear weapons.
The main justification for the war in Iraq was that Saddam Hussein was preparing weapons of mass destruction that could be used against the United States and its allies; as of now, the world is still waiting for these weapons to be revealed.
