*sputtering*…..WHAT??!! You mean President Bush was right in October 2002 when he told the American people:
“The evidence indicates that Iraq is reconstituting its nuclear weapons program. Saddam Hussein has held numerous meetings with Iraqi nuclear scientists, a group he calls his “nuclear mujahideen” — his nuclear holy warriors.”
Yes he was. Bush told the truth, and Americans lived!
The proof? Yet another translated document from The Saddam Files. This one shows that Saddam had a meeting with his Chief of Atomic Energy and research scientists on May 12, 2002 and June 9, 2002. Remember, Saddam told the UN and the world that he no longer had an atomic program. His paid-off diplomats in Paris and Moscow probably new this as well. From PajamasMedia’s Iraq Files:
Pages 186 and 193 of document BIAP 2003 00090 carry one of the most important information revealed so far regarding Saddam Nuclear Program. In these two pages which document a summary of meetings held by members of The Military Office of the Iraqi Baath Party and dated May/12/2002 and June/9/2002 they have a section that discuss Saddam Hussein meeting with the Chairman of the Atomic Energy and an elite of researchers.
I first thought that this may be a reference to a meeting between Saddam and the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) so I called both of IAEA offices in New York and Vienna to check if Saddam had any meeting with the IAEA Chairman prior to May 2002, and they indicated to me that they do not recall any such meeting of IAEA chairman and Saddam prior to May 2002.
Which means Condi Rice was also right when she warned (after the 9/11 attacks) on September 8, 2002: “”We don’t want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.” That same CNN report says:
White House sources also tell CNN that Saddam has in recent months met several times with Iraq’s top nuclear scientists and encouraged them to continue their work.
It has now been confirmed by Saddam’s own documents.
