While I'm not surprised at the action of the WMD's having been moved to Syria, I'm surprised that it finally came to light. I guess with all those who were under the command of Saddam Hussein now seeing him locked up and on trial with no chance of getting off, they aren't quite as scared to come forward anymore.
The second in command of Saddam's Air Force, Georges Sada, has now written about the movement of WMD's to Syria in his new book Saddam's Secrets
New York Sun
The man who served as the no. 2 official in Saddam Hussein's air force says Iraq moved weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the war by loading the weapons into civilian aircraft in which the passenger seats were removed.
"There are weapons of mass destruction gone out from Iraq to Syria, and they must be found and returned to safe hands," Mr. Sada said. "I am confident they were taken over."
Mr. Sada's comments come just more than a month after Israel's top general during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Moshe Yaalon, told the Sun that Saddam "transferred the chemical agents from Iraq to Syria."
Syria is run by Baathists, the same type of regime as Saddam Hussein.
