More WMD Proof Up and Coming...?
There is an International Intelligence Summit in D.C. next week --and, according to the website, a former military intelligence analyst is set to produce tapes of Saddam's office meetings...
"The audiotapes, which had apparently been overlooked, were found in a warehouse along with many other untranslated Iraqi intelligence files. These tapes are extremely significant, since they may be the best evidence yet of Saddam's secret intentions concerning weapons of mass destruction.
Before 9/11, many intelligence experts were convinced that a very strong and important Iraqi WMD connection existed, only to change their minds when no concrete evidence of that connection could be uncovered in the three years following the beginning of Iraqi war.
Because of the considerable historical importance of this stunning recent development, the contractor who obtained and reviewed these tapes plans to release them to the public on February 17, 2006 at the Intelligence Summit, a non-partisan, non-profit conference open to the public, scheduled to be held at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Virginia that weekend.
After his presentation, a panel of intelligence experts will discuss the ways in which experts may verify the fact that Hussein in fact recorded these audiotapes. These procedures include utilization of voiceprint analysis and other technical means of voice verification." (source)
I have never heard of this Multi-national intelligence summit until I read this article speculating about these tapes and the information about WMD they may contain. As much as I would like definitive proof there was WMD for the "I told you so" factor...I want it even more for the troops that have given and are still risking their lives...
