The audio of the entire interview will be available later today and is accessible to StreamLink subscribers for just pennies.
Art Bell, who typically suspends his disbelief when it comes to aliens and ghosts, had a difficult time buying into Michael Shrimpton's solid evidence. I did not.
Many of us bloggers posted several articles back in 2003 and 2004 about the satellite imagery proof positive evidence of WMDs being transported into Syria. With the United States pronouncement several months before our actual invasion into Iraq, this timeframe proved to be an excellent window for Germany, France and Syria to enable Iraq to offload her WMDs.
Today I decided to research again the articles that were published some years ago by major media outlets, like the Washington Post, which used to link to its own U.N.: Weapons Equipment Missing in Iraq article, but it no longer exists on their site.
However, the Washington Post made sure that articles that embarass the Bush and the Blair administrations still exist. See this. Good editing of your archives, Washington Compost. You've certainly earned your nickname.
CNN posted this article alongside NewsMax posting this one. But the Washington Post published this one.
The Guardian did at one time but no longer links to Polish Troops Find Sarin Warheads in Iraq, but you can find the same article on USAToday here and on FoxNews here. Fortunately, this article Nerve gas used for first time against coalition does still exist at The Guardian, but you better hurry. Referrals from Smooth Stone might make the Arabists there scurry and cover their dirty tracks.
Art Bell claimed during the interview that he did not see one article that described the movement of WMDs out of Iraq into Syria.
I post the following links to prove otherwise:
From Associated Press, U.N.: Weapons equipment missing in Iraq, available on MSNBC
From Geo-Strategy Intelligence Brief, Duelfer: 'A lot of material left Iraq and went to Syria', available on WorldNetDaily
From FrontPageMag, Where the WMDs Went, still available there,
From NewsMax, Iraqi Documents Show Saddam Possessed WMD, Had Extensive Terror Ties, originally published on CNSNews.com,
From NewsMax, Powell: Bush Right to Assume Iraq Had WMDs
From NewsMax, Warner: New Report Backs Iraq WMD Claims
Now, on July 21, 2004, UPI published "Nuclear arms reportedly found in Iraq" and it was cited on every one of these sites, but the article no longer exists on UPI's pages.
The NY Sun still has its link to Saddam's WMD Moved to Syria, An Israeli Says
FrontPageMagazine still links to the Butcher of Basra, an interview with Ali Ibrahim Al-Tikriti, a southern regional commander for Saddam's Fedayheen in the mid-to-late 1980's.

NewsMax links to Gen. Tommy Franks: Iraq Had WMD in 2003
The ScotsMan links to Saddam bankrolled Palestinian terrorists, but nobody cares when a Jew gets blown to bits, because the Jew-hating savages over at Daily KOS believe we deserve it.
MensNewsDaily still links to Syria and the WMD Shell Game
WorldNetDaily, forever loyal to its readership, links to Saddam's WMD have been found and The Heritage Foundation still has links to Syria-ous Problem.
There is no doubt that the mainstream media outlets, those raggy tabloids which deleted their links to their own published pages which document WMDs in Iraq and Syria, have fallen for
the trumped-up concoction of superstitions and deceit which is Islam, merely because the world was cursed by having its main energy source located under the feet of muslim savages.
By the way, did you know that France buys oil from Iran at $12 a barrel? Talk about dirty players.
Let's not forget the Democrat Quotes on Saddam Hussein's WMD Before the War.
In Saddam’s Gifts, which is an ABC News page that no longer exists, but which is cited on Right Voices, we learn that
An Iraqi newspaper has published an extraordinary list that contains the namesMore from Right Voices in How Much Does Appeasement Cost in Oil?:
of prominent people around the world who supported Saddam Hussein’s regime and
were given oil contracts as a result.
These are the people the US was to wait for a permission slip from? They said that Bush was in it for the oil…for the special interests in Halliburton and their contracts — that Big Oil was pushing the war on Iraq.Here are photos of satellite images of WMD facilities in Syria. Also, a senior Syrian journalist reports Iraq WMD located in three Syrian sites, here.
See how easily these appeasers are able to look the other way in the face of human atrocities of the Saddam kind? When they are given gifts of money and big oil contracts - - it’s amazing how the cost of human life, at the hands of that brutal dictator and his men, can seem so paltry.
Among those names are:
The Companies of the Russian Communist Party
The Companies of the Liberal Democratic Party
The Russian Committee for Solidarity with Iraq
Head of the Russian Presidential Cabinet
The Russian Orthodox Church
Charles Pasqua, former minister of interior
Trafigura (Patrick Maugein), businessman
Bernard Merimee, former French ambassador to the United Nations
Michel Grimard, founder of the French-Iraqi Export Club
France was the second-largest beneficiary, with tens of millions of barrels awarded to Patrick Maugein, a close political associate and financial backer of French President Jacques Chirac.
Firas Mostafa Tlass, son of Syria’s defense minister
Zeynel Abidin Erdem
President Megawati Sukarnoputri

How much oil does appeasement cost? How many women and children? How much fear? Interests within Russia and France top this list - - two of the top three countries strongly opposed to the loss of their lucrative oil contracts war in Iraq.
JihadWatch still cites a now non-existant article from AFP's Syria tested chemical arms on civilians in Darfur region

I think you get my point. For Art Bell, an intelligent and inquiring fellow, to claim alongside American fascists who believe the canard that 9-11 was an inside job, that there was no evidence of any articles to suggest that WMDs were hauled out of Iraq into Syria, is just not believable. The evidence exists. It just depends on what side of the Arab love fest you're on.
Liberals and their pro-Islam agenda are ready to toss the Jews - and Americans - into the cage in order to feed the Islamic beast. How long until the American people realize that? Maybe they will realize it the next time we get hit. And we will get hit again.
