Iraqi General: Saddam Flew WMDs to Syria <br>
<br>
2/7/2006 TruthNews.com <br>
Webcast News Service - Former Iraqi general Georges Sada, who served as second-in-command of the Iraqi air force under deposed dictator Saddam Hussein, says Hussein moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the US-led invasion by loading them into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed. The revelation is made in the newly published book, Saddam's Secrets. <br>
<br>
Speaking to The New York Sun, Sada reported that special Republican Guard units led by Saddam's cousin, Ali Hussein al-Majid, nicknamed "Chemical Ali," loaded "yellow barrels with skull and crossbones" in two Boeing jets. The planes made 56 flights to Syria in the weeks leading up to the war. Hussein also sent WMD out on trucks. <br>
<br>
"Saddam realized, this time, the Americans are coming," Sada said. "They handed over the weapons of mass destruction to the Syrians." <br>
<br>
The revelation follows by one month Israeli Gen. Moshe Yaalon's comments that Israel had intelligence showing that Saddam "transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria." <br>
<br>
The term "weapons of mass destruction" is used to describe nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons. In the case of Iraq, Hussein was suspected of possessing primarily chemical weapons, although the Iraqis were also working on developing nuclear weapons. As part of the ceasefire in the 1991 Persian Gulf war, Hussein agreed to get rid of his WMDs. However, Hussein's many "palaces" were off-limits to U.N. weapons inspectors, and the dictator kicked the U.N. inspectors out of Iraq in 1998. <br>
<br>
A U.S.-led coalition occupied Iraq in 2003, in part because Hussein was suspected of continuing to possess chemical weapons. However, no chemical weapons have been found by the occupying forces. <br>
<br>
On March 16, 1988, Hussein attacked the Iraqi Kurdish town of Halabjah with a mix of mustard gas and nerve agents, killing 5,000 civilians, and wounding 10,000 more. <br>
<br>
Syria, which shares a long border with Iraq, is ruled by the Baath party, as was Iraq under Saddam Hussein. The Baath party was founded in 1945 as a radical, left-wing, Arab nationalist party and came to power in both Syria and Iraq in 1963. <br>
<br>
Syria's regime, headed by dictator Bashar Assad, has a long history of supporting terrorist groups. Terrorist groups sponsored by Syria include Hamas, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. In addition, Assad has been accused of masterminding the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. <br>
<br>
Sada's book also says that on the eve of the first Gulf War, Saddam was planning to use his air force to launch a chemical weapons attack on Israel<br>
