Iraqi WMD: Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons

WMD found in Iraq
October 2014 finds the New York Times printing a story about how WMD were really in Iraq and it was kept quiet. The Democrats have been campaigning for years on the claims that WMD weren't found and 'Bush lied'  Any independent thinker and serious news reader has known for years that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction,  which rules out the supporters of Obama and the current left wing in American politics. 

Secret Casualties of Iraq’s Abandoned Chemical Weapons
Five years after President George W. Bush sent troops into Iraq, these soldiers had entered an expansive but largely secret chapter of America’s long and bitter involvement in Iraq.

From 2004 to 2011, American and American-trained Iraqi troops repeatedly encountered, and on at least six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons remaining from years earlier in Saddam Hussein’s rule.

In all, American troops secretly reported finding roughly 5,000 chemical warheads, shells or aviation bombs, according to interviews with dozens of participants, Iraqi and American officials, and heavilyredacted intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
