An Extensive Case for WMD in Iraq

Posted by on Nov 25, 2011 in Articles, Books, Media | 6 comments

One of the more controversial aspects of SEAL Target Geronimo is proving to be his contention that weapons of mass destruction existed in Iraq. While not the majority opinion, the theory is not just Chucks. Perhaps it’s time to review an article Chuck wrote back in 2008. Chuck’s article in The Counter Terrorist Magazine makes a case for the existence of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq both before and after the U.S. invasion. This extensively researched and annotated article was well-received by the readers of a magazine that calls itself “America’s premier informational journal for law enforcement, intelligence and special operations professionals”. In other words, such a controversial theory couldn’t face a tougher audience than Chuck’s peers in counter terrorism.

The abstract of Chuck’s article says:

Since 2003, more than 500 chemical weapons have been discovered and
neutralized by coalition forces in Iraq. These legacy weapons, including the nerve
agent GB (Sarin) have been used in at least one attack staged against coalition
forces. Given that undiscovered pre-Gulf War Iraqi WMDs may number in the
hundreds, the author argues that these weapons pose a grave threat both to
coalition forces and to the continental United States. Sourced by media
reporting, published UN, UNSCOM and UNMOVIC technical assessments, as
well as unclassified memorandums by the Director of National Intelligence.

Much of the information Chuck gathered here, was later used in the chapters of SEAL Target Geronimo dealing with the subject of weapons of mass destruction. Attached is a PDF version of the article as The Counter Terrorist Magazine only makes published articles available online to paid subscribers.

  1. read Geronimo,could not put it down!!! it cleared things up for me about the raid and the life of Osama. five stars,THANKYOU

  2. Thanks Thomas. The truth is a persistent thing. I’m very glad you liked it.


  3. This book should open eyes to some of the people on the left and to those outside of the military. I could not stop reading this book. Well done!!!

  4. Just finished the book. Great read. Finished it in one day. Couldn’t put it down.

    A few years ago, I found myself attached to a SOF unit in Afghanistan as a contract K9 handler to CJSOTF. I saw first hand a world many people will never get to see. Mr. Pfarrer’s writing really conveys to the reader what these men are all about. The men of units like DEVGRU, CAG, SAS and JTF2 are some of the finest human beings I have ever had the pleasure to be associated with.

  5. Chuck,

    This article claims the al Baya chemical attack happened on March 16, 2004 and the same attack in your book, Seal Target Geronimo, is said to have happened in 2003 (see page 207 and 210). Which is correct? And if the book is wrong, I wanted to bring it to your attention before you release your expanded edition.

    Your book was the first place I had ever seen well documented evidence of the existence of WMDs in Iraq and so I’m scouring over the evidence to try and see who all knows this and how much they know. This is why I’ve spotted the error in the above mentioned date. Thanks.

  6. Hey Chuck Pfarrer! I hope you know me!
