Gohmert: Iraq Had WMD, 'Rumors' They Moved Stockpile To Syria
Discussing the Syria crisis yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) insisted that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, even though the government’s Iraq Survey Group found that the country did not possess such weapons or the capability of producing them. “Yes, we knew that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” Gohmert said on Washington Watch, citing Saddam Hussein’s 1988 gas attack against Kurds in Halabja.
“There were rumors about them moving over into Syria and other countries but they never were able to verify where they went but we knew he had them,” the congressman charged, referring to false claims that Iraq moved its weapons to Syria. “There was talk about nuclear arms, but we knew he had those and now we know Syria has them.”
The ISG report confirmed that Iraq also had no nuclear program.
