    Seated on a couch in the middle of the elaborately furnished villa was a small, thin woman in her late 30s with short blond hair who introduced herself as Carol. On the table before the couch were plates full of sweets and fruit slices, imported from Kuwait, which Carol invited Mohammed to taste.
    This sounds like the start of a porn movie I saw once

    Stacey joined them, and soon she and Carol began questioning Mohammed. About five minutes into the session, the two women were joined by a third person, an Army lieutenant colonel who introduced himself as Dave. Dave was dressed in the same khaki trousers as Stacey and Carol, but sported a gray T-shirt emblazoned with the seal of the United States and the words “U.S. Embassy Kuwait.” A short, athletic-looking man with gray hair, Dave quickly took over the proceedings, with Carol and Stacey taking notes. For four hours Dave questioned Mohammed about various matters dealing with the Iraqi’s former work.
    Aww DAMN...no porn. Note, ladies and gentlemen, highlighted section.

    Anyone ever seen one of these T shirts?
    Odysseus?

    The final line of questioning focused on weapons of mass destruction “George Bush is in trouble. Our people did not find any WMD in Iraq.-Can you help us?”. Dave was on his feet, pacing before Mohammed, before turning to him and asking straight out, “Where are the weapons of mass destruction?” Mohammed, who had intimate knowledge of certain aspects of the Iraqi WMD effort, replied straight back:

    “There are no WMD in Iraq.


    Right.The people of Halabja died from the common cold.

    Dave continued pacing back and forth in front of Mohammed. “My president,” he said, “is in trouble. Can you help him?” Mohammed was taken aback by the question. “Excuse me?” he asked. “Could you repeat yourself?” Dave sat down next to the Iraqi. “George Bush is in trouble. Our people did not find any WMD in Iraq. Can you help us?”
    Since WHEN does a Lieutenant COLONEL refer to his CinC as "George Bush"? His title is PRESIDENT and I find it VERY hard to believe that any officer would call him that aloud, as someone would correct him. I CALL B.S.

    Mohammed looked back at Dave. “How?” “Can we prepare something for that? We could bring in some nuclear material from the former Soviet Union, and pretend they are Iraqi.”
    WTF???

    Mohammed, stunned by the unexpected nature of the request, indicated that such a ploy could be easily uncovered by forensic examination of the evidence by outside experts, such as UNSCOM (the United Nations Special Commission) or the IAEA, who would undoubtedly be called in to verify such a finding. Dave sat in silence for a few moments, before springing to his feet. “I have to leave for a meeting,” he said. “Stacey will show you out.”
    ...and a US officer, of course being a dolt, would never have known this before he opens his mouth, needng Mohammed to "educate him" WHO THE FUCK is Ritter trying to kid with this idiocy???

    As if a US Lt Colonel would NOT be aware of the protocols and procedures when dealing with radioactive materials???

    In my extensive dealings with him, Mohammed has never lied to me or exaggerated about events he was personally involved in.
    Well, Scotty, he just told you a whopper and you fell for it. Let's start with Dave's name, rank, unit,

    His story establishes a pattern of behavior which shows how the Bush administration, especially when operating in the form of small, ideologically motivated teams functioning outside the norms and conventions of the mainstream, was able to consider (in Mohammed’s case) manufacturing data and circumstances to bolster its false case for invading Iraq, and (per author Ron Suskind) actually manufacture such data and circumstances. I trust Mohammed.
    You trust "Mohammed"? I'm not even a US officer, and I can smell the bullshit in this story from FIVE THOUSAND MILES AWAY

    And so I am willing to believe Suskind and his sources about similar cases of fraud, this time in the form of the CIA’s manufactured Mukhabarat document.
    Ritter...you've been HAD.

    I haven't, but that doesn't mean much. Grey t-shirts with logos on them are pretty common. You can get a shirt with the State Dept seal on it fairly easily, I would think, and adding the line about the embassy would only require a set of iron-on letters and an iron.

    The biggest problem with this story is that Iraq had literally hundreds of tons of uranium. He also had several nuclear facilities whose existence was well-documented. Ritter must be smoking something if the thinks that this is going to fly.

    there is this.

    and there is the "downing street memo."

    both "irrefutable claims to the truth!"

    why?

    because all sorts of the highest classified top secret "for eyes only" information of america's intentions are just so readily available to bloggers hither and yon. 9/11. ship movements. plans to attack iran. its in the blogs! just read the blogs! its all there!



    the blogs have access to all of the truth. america has no secrets. bloggers have access to all classified information.

    we should just surrender now...

    I didn't see any. I'm going to add a caveat, though. I travelled from Arifjan to KNB, LSA Ali Al Saleem and Camp Virginia. I didn't get into Kuwait City, so I wasn't anywhere near the embassy.

    Sounds like a passage from the book "Sins of that Assasin" modified for current times.
