    Sure, Senate reports, dozens of articles from mainstream media isn't proof....

    Video Clip: "Shaking Hands with Saddam Hussein," Iraqi President Saddam Hussein greets Donald Rumsfeld, then special envoy of President Ronald Reagan, in Baghdad on December 20, 1983.


    Shaking Hands with Saddam Hussein

    In a September 26, 2002, article entitled “Following Iraq's Bioweapons Trail,” columnist Robert Novak wrote,

    An eight-year-old Senate report confirms that disease-producing and poisonous materials were exported, under U.S. government license, to Iraq from 1985 to 1988 during the Iran-Iraq war. Furthermore, the report adds, the American-exported materials were identical to microorganisms destroyed by United Nations inspectors after the Gulf War. The shipments were approved despite allegations that Saddam used biological weapons against Kurdish rebels and (according to the current official U.S. position) initiated war with Iran.

    WE KNOW HOW 'LIBERAL' BOB NOVAK WAS RIGHT? LOL

    Unfortunately, the U.S.-WMD connection to Saddam Hussein involved more than just delivering those WMDs to him. In an August 18, 2002, New York Times article entitled “Officers Say U.S. Aided Iraq in War Despite Use of Gas,” Patrick E. Tyler wrote,

    A covert American program during the Reagan administration provided Iraq with critical battle planning assistance at a time when American intelligence agencies knew that Iraqi commanders would employ chemical weapons in waging the decisive battles of the Iran-Iraq war, according to senior military officers with direct knowledge of the program.

    Name one that Malaki has.
    oh, wait, John (crybaby) Boner.

    When TF did America become Iraq's ally? Before we invaded, or after we left?

    Some people have compared it to Hitler's publication of Mein Kampf, which was ignored until after the war was over.

    If by "sunni establishment" you mean the Saddam Regime. Which we also paid Kurds and Sunni to attack. That lasted about 30 seconds until we toppled them. The US expended quite a lot of blood and treasure to keep Iraq from descending into a Civil War. Your claim is either completely uninformed, or insane.
