I can’t take credit for that headline, that one came from John Hinderaker at Powerline on the news, old news at that, that Saddam lied to the world about his WMD’s. This from George Piro who interrogated him for months after his capture:

Once the invasion was certain, says Piro, Saddam asked his generals if they could hold the invaders for two weeks. “And at that point, it would go into what he called the secret war,” Piro tells Pelley. But Piro isn’t convinced that the insurgency was Saddam’s plan. “Well, he would like to take credit for the insurgency,” says Piro.

Saddam still wouldn’t admit he had no weapons of mass destruction, even when it was obvious there would be military action against him because of the perception he did. Because, says Piro, “For him, it was critical that he was seen as still the strong, defiant Saddam. He thought that [faking having the weapons] would prevent the Iranians from reinvading Iraq,” he tells Pelley.

The fact that he kept the UN and the world at bay for 13 years was also part of his plan. Letting us in for a bit, then kicking us out, all in an attempt to portray a man hiding something. But the most damning part?

He also intended and had the wherewithal to restart the weapons program. “Saddam] still had the engineers. The folks that he needed to reconstitute his program are still there,” says Piro. “He wanted to pursue all of WMD…to reconstitute his entire WMD program.” This included chemical, biological and nuclear weapons, Piro says.

Nothing earth shattering there. In fact WMD was found after our invasion, something the MSM conveniently ignores, and to think that the man found god and was going to forgo anymore WMD in his future, if allowed to remain in power, isn’t only foolhardy….its dangerous. Thankfully we had a President who called his bluff and freed a nation.
