Investigation Continues Into Saddam Tapes

Congress's Secret Saddam Tapes

The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence is studying 12 hours of audio recordings between Saddam Hussein and his top advisers that may provide clues to the whereabouts of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

The committee has already confirmed through the intelligence community that the recordings of Saddam's voice are authentic, according to its chairman, Rep. Peter Hoekstra of Michigan, who would not go into detail about the nature of the conversations or their context. They were provided to his committee by a former federal prosecutor, John Loftus, who says he received them from a former American military intelligence analyst.

The audio recordings are part of new evidence the House intelligence committee is piecing together that has spurred Mr. Hoekstra to reopen the question of whether Iraq had the biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons American inspectors could not turn up.

They were provided to his committee by a former Federal prosecutor, John Loftus, who says he received them from a former American military intelligence analyst.

Mr. Loftus will make the recordings available to the public on February 17 at the annual meeting of the Intelligence Summit, of which he is president.

Mr. Hoekstra is one of many who believe the question of what happened to Saddam's weapons of mass destruction is still unresolved. Last week Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld voiced similar doubts at the National Press Club. "We have not found them. We also have found a number of things we didn't imagine. We found a bunch of jet airplanes buried in Iraq. Who buries airplanes? I mean, really. So I don't know what we'll find in the months and years ahead. It could be anything," he said.

Stay tuned for Kennedy, Kerry, Leahy and the rest of the Terrorist Defense Tag-Team to scream that Saddam's rights have been violated.

The scary part of this is that the damn weapons could be in Syria. Saddam and the Syrian government were allies and the Syrian government is about as crazy as Saddam.

Hi GUYK, it is scary and very, very possible that he did move the weapons there.It will be interesting to find out what is on the tapes.
Thank you for commenting.

There is evidence that supports that. I don't know how reliable it is. But a very strong possability given the truck traffic from Iraq to Syria before the US invasion. This link has some interesting information.

I find it interesting that CNN reported on a story in 2004 about Jordanian forces stopping a chemical attack in Amman that resulted in the capture of about 20 tons of 71 different types of chemicals. Yet no one apparantly thought to speculate where Al-Qaeda was able to get such a large amount of chemicals, given the controversy just across the border.
