A BRITISH cow that died in an Oxfordshire field in 1937 has emerged as the source of Saddam Hussain’s “weapons of mass destruction” programme that led to the Iraq war.

An ear from the cow was sent to an English laboratory, where scientists discovered anthrax spores that were later used in secret biological warfare tests by Winston Churchill.

The culture was sent to the United States, which exported samples to Iraq during Saddam’s war against Iran in the 1980s. Inspectors have found that this batch of anthrax was the dictator’s choice in his attempts to create biological weapons.

How about the anthrax attacks following 9/11. They seemed to have swept that whole debacle under the rug in a hurry. It was some pretty damn transparent home grown terrorism coming from in our government.

of Rummy shaking hands with Saddam Hussein 3 months prior to the massacre of the Kurds. After Saddam's WMD use, we continued to fund him to the tune of billions through 1990.

The same goddamn people who are in power in the US right now.
