We do know that [Saddam Hussein] is actively pursuing a nuclear
weapon. We do know that there have been shipments going into [Iraq], for
instance, of aluminum tubes that really are only suited to—high-quality
aluminum tools that are only really suited for nuclear weapons programs,
We know that he has the infrastructure, nuclear scientists to
make a nuclear weapon. And we know that when the inspectors assessed this
after the Gulf War, he was far, far closer to a crude nuclear device than
anybody thought, maybe six months from a crude nuclear device.
The problem here is that there will always be some uncertainty
about how quickly he can acquire nuclear weapons. But we don’t what the
smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud.

We’ve experienced the horror of September the 11th. We
have seen that those who hate America are willing to crash airplanes into
buildings full of innocent people. Our enemies would be no less willing, in
fact, they would be eager, to use biological or chemical, or a nuclear weapon.
Knowing these realities, America must not ignore the threat gathering against
us. Facing clear evidence of peril, we cannot wait for the final

I believe Saddam Hussein is a threat to the American people. I
believe he’s a threat to the neighborhood in which he lives. And
I’ve got a good evidence to believe that. He has weapons of mass
destruction, and he has used weapons of mass destruction, in his neighborhood
and on his own people. He’s invaded countries in his neighborhood. He
tortures his own people. He’s a murderer. He has trained and financed al

Saddam Husayn ended the nuclear program in 1991 following the
Gulf war. ISG [Iraq Survey Group] found no evidence to suggest concerted
efforts to restart the program.
…ISG judges that Iraq unilaterally destroyed its
undeclared chemical weapons stockpile in 1991. There are no credible
indications that Baghdad resumed production of chemical munitions
ISG found no direct evidence that Iraq, after 1996, had plans
for a new BW [biological warfare] program or was conducting BW-specific work
for military purposes.

Hanyok, The National Security Agency’s Cryptologic Quarterly, 2000.
(S//SI) In maintaining the official
version of the attack, the NSA made use of surprisingly few published SIGINT
reports—fifteen in all. The research behind the new version which
follows is based on the discovery of an enormous amount of never-before-used
SIGINT material. This included 122 relevant SIGINT products, along with watch
center notes, oral history interviews, and messages among the various SIGINT
and military command centers involved in the Gulf of Tonkin incidents.
Naturally, this flood of new information changed dramatically the story of
that night of 4/5 August. The most important element is that it is now known
what the North Vietnamese Navy was doing that night. And with this information
a nearly complete story finally can be told.
(S//SI) Two startling findings emerged from the new
research. First, it is not simply that there is a different story as to what
happened; it is that no attack happened that night.

Excerpt: “But he said that probably the ‘most historically significant feature’ of the declassified report was the retelling of the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident.
“That was a reported North Vietnamese attack on American destroyers that helped lead to president Lyndon Johnson’s sharp escalation of American forces in Vietnam.
“The author of the report ‘demonstrates that not only is it not true, as (then US) secretary of defense Robert McNamara told Congress, that the evidence of an attack was ‘unimpeachable,’ but that to the contrary, a review of the classified signals intelligence proves that ‘no attack happened that night,’’ FAS said in a statement.
What this study demonstrated is that the available intelligence shows
that there was no attack. It’s a dramatic reversal of the historical
record, Aftergood said.

No Attack Happened in Gulf of Tonkin
Newly declassified documents have provided more evidence the
Johnson administration faked the Gulf of Tonkin incident to escalate the
Vietnam War. The alleged 1964 attack on U.S. warships by North Vietnamese was
used as a pretext to increase bombing and troop deployments in Vietnam. But a
report from the National Security Agency concludes
no attack happened that
Excerpt: “In the early 1960s, America’s top military leaders reportedly drafted plans to kill innocent people and commit acts of terrorism in U.S. cities to create public support for a war against Cuba.
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the
possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban
refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even
orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.
Note: The following declassified top-secret documents on Operation Northwoods are displayed directly from the National Archives.

Excerpt, from Frank A. DeMartini, on-site construction manager of the World Trade Center: “The [WTC] building was designed to have a fully loaded 707 crash into it. That was the largest plane at the time. I believe that the building probably could sustain multiple impacts of jetliners because this structure is like the mosquito netting on your screen door—this intense grid—and the jet plane is just a pencil puncturing that screen netting. It really does nothing to the screen netting.”

The buildings have been investigated and found
to be safe in an assumed collision with a large jet airliner (Boeing
707—DC 8) traveling at 600 miles per hour. Analysis indicates that such
collision would result in only local damage which could not cause collapse or
substantial damage to the building and would not endanger the lives and safety
of occupants not in the immediate area of impact.

Explosives in World Trade Center[watch online for free] by Niels H. Harrit, TV 2 News, April 6, 2009.
International researchers have found traces of explosives among
the World Trade Center rubble. A new scientific article concludes that impacts
from the two hijacked aircraft did not cause the collapses in 2001. We turn
our attention to 9/11—the major attack in New York. Apparently the two
airplane-impacts did not cause the towers to collapse, according to a newly
published scientific article. Researchers found nano-thermite explosive in the
rubble, that cannot have come from the planes.

Excerpt: “A report on an April 2001 conference discloses who was known to be working on such explosives at that time:
The 221st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society held during April 2001 in San Diego featured a symposium on Defense Applications of Nanomaterials. … At this point in time, all of the military services and some DOE and academic laboratories have active R&D programs aimed at exploiting the unique properties of nanomaterials that have potential to be used in energetic formulations for advanced explosives… nanoenergetics hold promise as useful ingredients for the thermobaric (TBX) and TBX-like weapons, particularly due to their high degree of tailorability with regards to energy release and impulse management.
…we conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we
have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material,

Excerpt, from page 51 (page 63 of PDF): “A transformation strategy that solely pursued capabilities for projecting force from the United States, for example, and sacrificed forward basing and presence, would be at odds with larger American policy goals and would trouble American allies.
Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary
change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing
event—like a new Pearl Harbor.
