Saddam nuclear material sent to Canada

The Sydney News.Net
Saturday 5th July, 2008

US and Iraqi officials have sent a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium to a Canadian port, in a top-secret operation.

550 metric tons of yellowcake was sent by plane and ship from a nuclear enrichment stockpile in Iraq, to prevent it from reaching insurgents.

Officials say the US administration was concerned the yellowcake could be smuggled into Iran to assist in nuclear work.

The radioactive material came from the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex, which had been set up by Saddam Hussein about 12 miles south of Baghdad.

It is believed the compilation of the yellowcake from the Tuwaitha complex took about three months and was considered potent enough to be turned into a "dirty bomb," a weapon that would cause widespread panic if unleashed on a major city.

Yellowcake can be enriched for use in reactors and nuclear weapons.

Canadian uranium producer, Cameco Corp, has bought the material from the Iraqi government for use in energy-producing reactors.

The article is about 550 metric tons of yellowcake, pinhead. What do you suppose your hero Saddam planned to do with it?

Obvious the other end of the pin does not know or ...

..., he simplely cannot figure out what 'leftover' is?

Nor, can he figure out why Saddam placed it in a protected place.

The big question is?

Where was this nuclear material produced?

And who produced this nuclear material?

How did this nuclear material got into Iraq, in the first place?

I do believe that Iraq did not have the facilities to produce this material, and why was not this nuclear material discovered earlier, or maybe it is being exposed at the opportune time so that this war will be continued, and playing the fear card all over again so that it will influence the upcoming political elections.

poor thinker big mouth...

..., The URANIUM ORIGIN, hardly matters, possibly britain or norway. But it was prior to 1981, and likely in late 1970’s.

If you go looking, you’ll likely find guesses, and maybe even evidence of it origin.

In any case, by your posts, your way over your head, so keep going if you want to pile more evidence on yourself.

Not only does it matter, pinhead, it will tell exactly when it arrived in Iraq. Not when it likely arrived.

You make accusations, it is your responsibility to provide documentation. Any lunatic can do what you do.

You seem to enjoy displaying your lack of intellect, dimwit. When YOU make accusations and charges, the responsibility lies with you to provide evidence and documentation supporting them.

This IS the United States, moron, not some 3rd world hellhole which you evidently inhabit.

Largely ignored by media until now.

To think that people still find 500 tons of yellowcake in Iraq under Saddam was “harmless”. The yellowcake sure seems to be an issue with “bush lied” story. It was also an issue when there reports of smuggling of Saddam stockpiles from deserted bombed out sites.

Although lies were used to justify the war, doesn’t it seem stupid as hell to leave materials like that in Iraq under a dictator who constantly evaded, lied to inspectors and had a previous history of trying to obtain nuclear weapons?

Saddam had to know or the ability to recreate the enrichment processes. The UN watchdog left this there? Centrifuges%u2019 can be built underground as we have seen in both Iran and Iraq.

Do people really think Saddam posed no potential threat by leaving this in the country?

Is everybody satisfied with the history of UN inspections that took place in the country? I don’t think everybody was satisfied. Countries like France consistently complained and wanted to lift sanctions in hopes Saddam would become more forthcoming.

To say inspections and sanctions were doing the job is like saying Iran has nothing but good intentions for enriching its own uranium. Morons.

ssacehole, from my library...

http://www.isis-online.org/publications/iraq/iraqs_fm_history.html

Its a very large file, and a very long read. It does summarize the Iraqi Nuclear Program. And it about six years old since last updated.

As to the questions you pose, there is no correct, easy, right or wrong answers to your concerns.

As to what I mean, if you get through to the end, and read the entire file, you will have found many many contradictions, especially areas of concern to very poor choices in actions taken and their results. Yet in the end if 'accomplishment' is the critique, there is none.

Unless we begin adding up the negatives as accomplishment.

For the lil dumbass specialist, the Toronto Globe and Mail, reports the uranium as the remenant of the Saddam Nuclear Program. From my records that’s 1978 to 1992. I fully expect your incapable of reading the file and comprehending its contents, and even being able to read the full content. But there is no 'known' answer, and there are lots of facts. Where you will come up very short, you need to make educated guesses! Given your expertise, I don’t give you much chance .0001 of a tenth of 1% almost seem high!

I thought there were no WMDs???

550 metric tons of yellowcake from a nuclear enrichment stockpile in Iraq??? I thought there were no WMDs in Iraq! Why hasn’t the Big Media jumped on this story? I guess they have their own agendas (and rear ends) to cover, right? Looks like George Bush is looking better and better all the time!

WMD'S in Iraq still exist!

The WMD’s are the Iraqi people themselves!
Look at the death caused by other sects of Islam using them as the tool for killing each other is brilliant in a mass murderer sort of way.

Sarin, Ricin, VX nerve agents all require very little storage space.
A suitcase of VX gas is enough to kill millions of people.
A suitcase my friends!
How hard would a couple of suitcases be to find buried in the desert sand?
Anyone who says Iraq has no WMD’S is a deluded liar with an agenda nothing more.

Iraqi aircraft 'buried in desert'


The planes might never fly again
US forces in Iraq have discovered dozens of Iraqi fighter aircraft buried in the desert, US officials have said.
A Pentagon official told the Associated Press news agency that several MiG-25s and Su-25 attack planes were found hidden at al-Taqqadum air base west of Baghdad.

The planes were unearthed by teams hunting for alleged weapons of mass destruction.

The discovery comes as America’s weapons inspector in Iraq say they are making solid progress in the search for banned weapons the US says Saddam Hussein was hiding.

Poking out of sand

“Our guys have found 30-something brand new aircraft buried in the sand to deny us access to them," said Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Republican Porter Goss.

“These are craft we didn’t know about," he said.

At least one of the MiGs was found with its tail fins poking out of the sand, the agency quoted the Pentagon official as saying.

It said many of the planes were buried with little protection and might never fly again.

The Iraqi air force, believed to have numbered around 300 fighter planes, was not mobilised during the US-led war with Iraq earlier this year.

It is thought Saddam Hussein believed the ageing aircraft would be no match for American firepower, and sought to conceal them instead.




Saddam also contracted European nationals to create vast underground bunker systems.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/05/international/middleeast/05iraq.html


How many of these bunkers remain undiscovered even today?

Why where Saddams many palaces off limits to inspectors?
Why did various sites known to have high explosives go unguarded?

Why indeed?
Ask Dave Gaubatz

Approximately what percentage of WMD suspected sites have been searched in Iraq?

ANSWER: 10% or less of all suspected sites identified by U.S. intelligence officers were ever physically inspected by the Iraq Survey Group.

#2. Are the 4 sites in your article the only suspected sites that our intelligence have made the government aware of?

ANSWER: No, there are hundreds of sites identified as possibly containing chemical, biological, or nuclear related weapons/materials. I have recently talked with citizens currently living in Iraq and one of the primary reasons many Iraqis do not now trust America is because we told them the U.S. was going to remove the WMD. Many Iraqis risked their lives and many gave their lives at the beginning of the war to come forward and tell U.S. intelligence officers the locations of WMD. The Iraqis and intelligence officers are frustrated and still waiting for them to be searched.

#3. Since May of 2006 has there been any further contact with you from anybody in our government in relation to searching these sites?

ANSWER: I met with the DIA in Nov 2006. The information was also provided to Congressman Virgil Goode (Virginia) during this time as well. I firmly believe the DIA wants to have all sites inspected, but now politics are involved and they are being prevented from taking action. I have been told this from U.S. Govt. officials. Searching for WMD now is not politically good for Republicans nor Democrats so it will not happen. U.S. Special Agents located only two miles from the sites in southern Iraq are not being allowed to search the sites nor to monitor them.

#4. Is this declassified information from June 2006 where they found 500 weapons munitions, degraded, but classified as WMD’s, one of the sites that you are talking about in your article?

http://powerlineblog.com/archives/Iraq_WMD_HPSCI_Negroponte4.php

ANSWER: I wrote an article about the 500 weapon shells found by “Hoekstra and Santorum”. This is not from one of my sites. This junk was sitting in Iraq since day 1 and everyone knew about these shells. This was politics in high gear before the elections. My article is on my web site in the Articles section. (also my website is being updated)


#5. Is this biography of you accurate and up to date?

http://www.davegaubatz.com/files/Paul_Dave_Gaubatz_Biography_pdf.pdf

ANSWER: In late Sept 2006 I left the Dallas County Medical Examiner to take a position in Richmond, VA. I am not at liberty to discuss my current position.

#6. Has your insistence on bringing this to the publics eyes brought about any negative consequences in your life?

Answer: It has not been a pleasant experience. Many Congressmen are upset because I came forward about their lack of action. I have received threats from some of their high ranking staff; which had been filtered down from the Congressmen involved. I have received threats from Middle Easterners who support terrorist. My worst experiences have been with some of the news organizations who are supposed to report without politics being involved. If some of my answers did not fit into their political motives, then the interview did not move forward. I have lost friendships I had for years with other Federal Agents who were in Iraq. These Agents wanted to come forward as well, but since they are active duty were military Federal Agents, they were told to be silenced (and were). Russ Caso (Chief of Staff for Congressman Curt Weldon) personally phoned some of these Agents who wanted to come forward. They ended up being disciplined for wanting to come forward. Everyone should keep in mind that I was the only “civilian” Federal Agent on the ground in Iraq at the start of the war. All others were active duty military from the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI).

#7. Who is actively involved in the 2007 Intelligence Summit that you will be speaking at this coming year?

ANSWER: There will be attendees from our Govt., law enforcement officers from many departments/organizations, and other former active Intelligence officers. I will be speaking with Ryan Mauro (worldthreats.com). For security reasons I can’t name the guest speaker who is invited to speak with me, but he is a former Iraqi police officer and a very good friend.

#8. Can you supply emails from the relevant parties to back up these claims?

ANSWER: I have numerous emails from Congressmen, their staff, Federal Agents, and more. I will share some of them.

(NOTE from Spree: Emails available upon request, email [email][email protected][/email])

#9. Are you still associated with WorldThreat.com?

ANSWER: My only association with WorldThreats.com has been my contact with Ryan Mauro.

#10. If yes: In March of 2006, Ryan Mauro did an interviews saying :

(Mauro: The tapes are extremely significant in that they prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that as of the year 2000, Saddam Hussein had a secret plasma program to enrich uranium for nuclear weapons, or “special bombs” as he calls them. The Duelfer Report previously concluded that this type of enrichment program ended in the 1980s, but here we have Saddam and his top advisors discussing using a power plant in the area of Basra for the program. The scientists involved in the program are not known to the UN, leaving Western intelligence clueless.

On the tapes, you hear Saddam discussing the assistance of Russia and Brazil in dealing with the United Nations. He laughs off inspections, as his son-in-law who later defects, Hussein Kamil, reports how as late as 1995 their chemical and biological programs were being hidden from the world. They also discuss keeping the ingredients for these weapons separate, so that should they be found, they will be looked at as innocent dual-use items. They were not destroyed in 1991 as the Duelfer Report concludes. There are even indications on the tapes that Iraq may have had a role in the 2001 anthrax attacks.)

Do you have access to those tapes for my readers to listen to?

ANSWER: I do not have access to these tapes. One of the sites that many Iraqis identified as having WMD is near Basrah. I provided the exact site coordinates to Congressman Curt Weldon, Congressman Pete Hoekstra, DOD, DIA, and the CIA. The site still has not been excavated. One Iraqi risked his life to take me to this location. Since that time he has received threats against his life and is now in hiding.


Followup:

Factual evidence that WMD was moved from Iraq to Syria before the war...There have been senior Iraqis, Iraqi citizens, and others who have advised WMD was taken from Iraq to Syria. In order for the public to ever know the truth the U.S. Government would have to go into Syria and search various locations. This is unlikely to ever happen. If ISG did not search WMD locations in Iraq when they had ample opportunities, we should not hold our breaths that Syria will be searched. Unfortunatley the “smoking gun” pertaining to WMD will be the day terrorists unleash WMD on American troops in Iraq or worse yet in American cities where our children are. There is no doubt Saddam Husein had WMD hidden in Iraq and still does. Iraqi citizens died by providing us the intelligence on the WMD locations. We owe it to them, our troops, and America to search all sites. WMD is not a political matter, but rather a national security matter.

Additional information to add: The U.S. has the best military, law enforcement, and best government the world has to offer, but unless they are trained and educated to understand the mindset of Islamic terrorists we will suffer another Sept. 11th type of attack in the very near future. We can’t play the political correct type of war that many Americans want to fight. Terrorists have various weapons and the one they count on more than any other is to be able to influence Americans and Israelis to fight amongst themselves. We are doing this in America. We are becoming a divided nation and this is one of the goals of terrorists.

As your website indicates it is time for America to wake up. thank you, Dave Gaubatz.
