Told 'Ya...

A new book is coming out. What makes it interesting is that it was written by Iraqi Air Force General Georges Sada. From the NY Sun: Major hat tip to Cold Fury for this link.
Iraq's WMD Secreted in Syria, Sada Says
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.

The Iraqi general, Georges Sada, makes the charges in a new book, "Saddam's Secrets," released this week. He detailed the transfers in an interview yesterday with The New York Sun.

"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."
Hell -- there were reports of a three day long truck convoy of vehicles heading from Iraq into Syria in the days leading up to Iraqi Freedom. The weapons are real, they were there, they were moved. Saddam certainly had enough time with all the delaying and stalling tactics that were done by the UN(spit) Mark in Mexico looks into the life of Georges Sada:
Who is Georges Sada and why should we care?
The New York Sun publishes an interview with Georges Sada, director of the Iraq operations of the Christian humanitarian organization, World Compassion. Mr. Sada previously was known as General Sada and was Air Vice Marshal in Saddam Hussein's military. Mr. Sada has written a book, just published by Integrity Publishers, Saddam's Secrets - How an Iraqi General Defied and Survived Saddam Hussein.
Read the rest of Mark's post to get the measure of this man. It is odd that I would consider a Military General to be a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize but Georges Sada is one of the better people out there. And for another witness to the movement of the WMD's, check out this article in the UK Telegraph from two years ago. If the link doesn't work for you, the Internet Archive has it stored in its Wayback Machine: "Saddam's WMD hidden in Syria, says Iraq survey chief"
Saddam's WMD hidden in Syria, says Iraq survey chief
David Kay, the former head of the coalition's hunt for Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, yesterday claimed that part of Saddam Hussein's secret weapons programme was hidden in Syria.

In an exclusive interview with The Telegraph, Dr Kay, who last week resigned as head of the Iraq Survey Group, said that he had uncovered evidence that unspecified materials had been moved to Syria shortly before last year's war to overthrow Saddam.
