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.
