Newsweek's translations wrong ....

Published:

A friend sent me this from another blog, New Media Alliance.    Noooooo bias  ..... noooo agenda whatsoever.  Clown  Who cares about accurate testimony from Saddam's General Sada who flew them out????? 

Face it, the MSM considers us all mushrooms .... keep us in the dark and feed us BS.


"Saddam General: Newsweek Translation of Saddam Tapes Wrong

Former Iraqi Air Force Gen. Georges Sada claims that Newsweek's translation of some of Saddam Hussein's tapes is wrong. Newsweek reported that the Saddam tapes include statements that there were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Speaking on Fox News Channel, General Sada said that the tapes were not translated correctly and his translation is that Saddam Hussein did have WMD. Why would Newsweek publish an erroneous story? Sada believes they used unqualified translators who confused Arab dialects. Others believe Newsweek may have a vested interest in perpetuating the story that Iraq had no WMD.

General Sada also says that chemical or biological weapons were flown to Syria in 56 flights, but was unable to confirm it.

General Sada's allegations are confirmed by others. A Pentagon official, John A. Shaw, who was responsible for keeping track of Iraq’
s weapons programs, claims that special Russian troops in civilian clothes supervised the transfer of Saddam’s WMDs into Syria. An Israeli general, Moshe Yaalon, has made a similar claim. The general in charge of Pentagon spy satellites has admitted observing large truck convoys from Iraq to Syria before the war began.

Yet most of the 2 million documents have not been explored or even translated. It’
s almost as if the CIA and the Pentagon don’t want to know what they contain.

According to the Boston Herald, the CIA’
s clandestine war against the White House means the agency cannot be trusted for an honest account of what’s in this material.

Many believe that Congress should make sure that an independent body, with no ax to grind, checks the documents and releases every last one that can be made public safely.

It's true; at least partly. General Sada held the #2 post in Iraq's air force, and was one of Saddam's most trusted advisers for over twenty years. In his new book, "Saddam's Secrets," General Sada gives a very detailed account of the components he and his subordinates flew out of Iraq in the months before the war began. He describes having seen and carried yellow barrels emblazoned with skulls and crossbones (biological agents), various delivery devices (warheads) and large blue cannisters filled with chemical agents.
Now for the not-so-true part:
The report quoted by Deputy Undersecretary Shaw can best be described as propaganda as it appears in news magazines. Anyone with a modicum of intelligence should be able to reason that it would be impossible to determine the collective nationality of a group of people wearing civilian clothes from a photograph taken from an altitude of fifteen miles.
This story, like so many others, has been shamelessly embellished and bastardized along its trip through the political grapevine. The truth is that the Fedayeen Saddam, made up of irregular Iraqi soldiers who were fiercely loyal to Saddam Hussein and the Ba'athist party, often wore captured Russian uniforms (obtained from Afghani replacements) when their own issues wore out. Only Saddam's elite Republican Guard were adequately fed and clothed on a regular basis; the remainder of his army was expected to survive on their faith and loyalty. There is no question that Fedayeen troops were utilized to facilitate the removal of WMD across the borders of Syria and Afghanistan, but that doesn't make for very good copy when you're trying to sell newspapers or magazines. It's much more fun, and profitable, to introduce a sinister element to the story and suggest that the Cold War continues, thus ensuring that the American public will continue to be at once fascinated, suspicious and, more importantly, fearful.

And the BS bus rolls forward filled with folks who like to be spoon fed the "evening news.'
