60 Minutes: CIA Official Reveals Bush, Cheney, Rice Were Personally Told Iraq Had No WMD in Fall 2002

Tonight on 60 Minutes, Tyler Drumheller, the former chief of the CIA’s Europe division, revealed that in the fall of 2002, President Bush, Vice President Cheney, then-National Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice and others were told by CIA Director George Tenet that Iraq’s foreign minister — who agreed to act as a spy for the United States — had reported that Iraq had no active weapons of mass destruction program. Watch it:

 

BRADLEY: According to Drumheller, CIA Director George Tenet delivered the news about the Iraqi foreign minister at a high level meeting at the White House.

DRUMHELLER: The President, the Vice President, Dr. Rice…

BRADLEY: And at that meeting…?

DRUMHELLER: They were enthusiastic because they said they were excited that we had a high-level penetration of Iraqis.

BRADLEY: And what did this high level source tell you?

DRUMHELLER: He told us that they had no active weapons of mass destruction program.

BRADLEY: So, in the fall of 2002, before going to war, we had it on good authority from a source within Saddam’s inner circle that he didn’t have an active program for weapons of mass destruction?

DRUMHELLER: Yes.

BRADLEY: There’s no doubt in your mind about that?

DRUMHELLER: No doubt in my mind at all.

BRADLEY: It directly contradicts, though, what the President and his staff were telling us.

DRUMHELLER: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming, and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy, to justify the policy.

Besides the huge money to be made, I still can't figure out why Iraq was invaded.

"ACTIVE" weapons of mass destruction. Notice the wording. The informant was a double agent anyhow.

You guys need to learn how to read "politico". "He told us that they had no active weapons of mass destruction program." This does not mean that Iraq did not have WMD. It only means they did not have an *active* program to *make more* WMDs. Suppose you bake some cookies in your kitchen. (Or your wife/gf does.) Once you turn off the oven and put up your baking pan, flour, etc., then you no longer have an *active* cookie program. You DO, however, still have a whole pan-full of cookies. To say "Since I no longer have an active cookie program, I do not have any cookies" would be a poor argument.

I will admit that the war is wrong, so there. Feel better? There was WMD in Iraq, they hid that shit in the ground, or destroyed it. The war is about oil. We ( USA) are almost out. We need more. I don't want to pay 8 dollars a gallon for it, so the Arabs can build more palaces made out of Diamonds and Gold Coins! Lets run this shit, take your mother fuckin oil bitch.

"You guys are a perfect example of what hawker was saying. It doesnt matter what anyone says because you will never admit the war was wrong." "active program" =/= "having" "LOL @ THAT COMPARISON !! COOKIES AND WMDS " LOL @ liberals missing the point. You know, if you cannot understand a simple analogy, then there really is no hope for you. If your only response is to put up a "cookies are not WMD" straw man, then that just shows that you cannot refute what I said. Again: "active program" =/= "having"

WMDs dont last very long. Once made they really dont do very well with time. Since the US reciept for the last shipment of WMDs to Iraq is probably 20-30 years old and the fact that most people in the know are saying Iraq did not possess WMD and we did not find any = no WMD program whats so ever. *eats cookie*

Hawker You have never been righter in your life. We ain't getting any of the oil from Iraq. Sucks doesn't it. There has already been WMD found in Iraq. The articles disappear rather quickly. Hmm it was really old or a really small quantity, blah blah blah and bullshit bullshit. Opec has been announcing for several months that they are going to cut production, they are going to stick it right up our filthy shitholes.

that Iraq's foreign minister -- who agreed to act as a spy for the United States -- had reported that Iraq had no active weapons of mass destruction program. Not that he could find, anyway. He was told there were some and he was told there were none.

Look at it like this. Saddam would have been a real dumbass to NOT have any WMD. After all He has this nice little country next to him called IRAN. He would have been stupid to not explore those options. The Iraqi's had all the time in the world to destroy or dispose of any shit they had. The inspectors were closely monitored, and delayed when they were doing an inspection. The Iraqi's knew in advance where an inspection was going to take place. I could hide a truck in my hometown where nobody could ever find it, it is not that difficult to secure something, shit, think about it.
