Iraqi Says WMD Moved to Syria

A high-ranking former Iraqi air force official claims Saddam Hussein moved his weapons of mass destruction into Syria before the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. The New York Sun reports that Georges Sada, one-time second in command of the Iraqi air force, told the newspaper that the weapons were loaded into civilian aircraft that had been stripped of their seats. And, Sada says the weapons are still in Syria. These claims also appear in his new book Saddam’s Secrets. Ah hah! Wait, the Sun says it has a corroborating statement from Moshe Yaalon, a former Israeli top general.
