Need dirt on George Sada. He spoke at a Christian church last week.
I am so infuriated about this. It is my mother's church and yesterday she made a point of telling me that he said Saddam had WMD that he moved to Syria in before the war. Why do these "Christians" spend so much time trying to defend the indefensible? We just had a fight on the phone because I said I was going to call the pastor and ask if he would have an anti-war speaker come to his church also. And then I mentioned Cindy Sheehan and she, (my mother) went ballistic and told me all about Cindy and Chavez. And when I said, "So what?" She said, "He came here and put down our country".

There is blood shooting out of my eyes right now. I want to calm down but I am going to write and email to that pastor and nicely give the other side of Sada and also ask if he would have an anti-war person speak at one of these meetings, (apparently they have regular speakers come).

So I need more information about this Sada guy besides the fact that the Iraq study group debunked everything he said.

Thanks all.

Report Finds No Evidence Syria Hid Iraqi Arms

By Dana Priest
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, April 26, 2005; Page A01

U.S. investigators hunting for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq have found no evidence that such material was moved to Syria for safekeeping before the war, according to a final report of the investigation released yesterday.

Although Syria helped Iraq evade U.N.-imposed sanctions by shipping military and other products across its borders, the investigators "found no senior policy, program, or intelligence officials who admitted any direct knowledge of such movement of WMD." Because of the insular nature of Saddam Hussein's government, however, the investigators were "unable to rule out unofficial movement of limited WMD-related materials."


The Iraq Survey Group's main findings -- that Hussein's Iraq did not possess chemical and biological weapons and had only aspirations for a nuclear program -- were made public in October in an interim report covering nearly 1,000 pages. Yesterday's final report, published on the Government Printing Office's Web site ( http://www.gpo.gov / ), incorporated those pages with minor editing and included 92 pages of addenda that tied up loose ends on Syria and other topics.

U.S. officials have held out the possibility that Syria worked in tandem with Hussein's government to hide weapons before the U.S.-led invasion. The survey group said it followed up on reports that a Syrian security officer had discussed collaboration with Iraq on weapons, but it was unable to complete that investigation. But Iraqi officials whom the group was able to interview "uniformly denied any knowledge of residual WMD that could have been secreted to Syria," the report said.

The report, which refuted many of the administration's principal arguments for going to war in Iraq, marked the official end of a two-year weapons hunt led most recently by former U.N. weapons inspector Charles A. Duelfer. The team found that the 1991 Persian Gulf War and subsequent U.N. sanctions had destroyed Iraq's illicit weapons capabilities and that, for the most part, Hussein had not tried to rebuild them. Iraq's ability to produce nuclear arms, which the administration asserted was a grave and gathering threat that required an immediate military response, had "progressively decayed" since 1991. Investigators found no evidence of "concerted efforts to restart the program."

2. It just occurred to me that if those pilots told him they transported the
WMD they would have known where they were transported to. So why didn't they/he inform the US of where the WMD went to? All he says is that we need to get them back.

Thnaks for the link BTW
