I know Baathist Iraq’s WMD potential existed.
Ten years ago, James Clapper, now the Director of National Intelligence, said he was “unquestionably sure” that Saddam’s WMDs had been moved out of Iraq.
Back in June, Iraqi authorities claimed that they broke up an Al Qaeda plot to use Sarin domestically and against the US and Europe.
While it’s entirely possible that either the government or the Turkish\Qatari-backed Sunni fighters are actually using chemical weapons on each other, the lack of a serious death toll would suggest that they aren’t very good at it.
