U.S. Study: ‘Unlikely’ Iraq Shipped WMD To Syria

It is “unlikely” that Iraq shipped WMD material into Syria prior to the 2003 U.S.-led invasion, according to a newly released report by the Iraq Survey Group, a CIA/Pentagon team searching for Iraqi weapons programs. The ISG said in an October 2004 report that the 1991 Persian Gulf War likely destroyed Iraq’s capabilities of producing WMD, and that Iraq had none when the United States invaded in 2003. After the October report, Vice President Dick Cheney and other U.S. officials said they still believed Iraq possessed WMD material prior to the invasion and had moved it across its border into Syria, where it may have been transferred to terrorists. The group’s final report addendums, which were released Monday on the Government Printing Office Web site, threw doubt on that scenario.Full Story
