On Jan 14, 2018, @dianeseaman posted a unique video of Saddam's minions experimenting with chemical agents on animals as part of their chemical weapons development program.
It was original material, straight from Saddam's WMD facilities.
Twitter and Youtube deleted it within hours, and Diane's Twitter account was deleted as well.
One day we will post it again.
This material should not be censored.
It also inspired a series of threads, also obliterated by Twitter.
Here's the first part:

(1) @dianejsaman added an interesting piece to the puzzle.
We will discuss it further.
It’s about time we dispel some myths about the Iraq war.
(5) How about the one I survived in Paris?
Older followers already know, but here it goes.
15 July 1983. Six dead. 65 wounded. Look at the headline…
(7) The sons of bitches tortured for hours and mutilated 11 olimpians before killing them.
They castrated weight-lifter Yoseff Romano forcing the rest to watch.
Those are your Palestinian fucking heroes.
(8) Or this one?
Achille Lauro. 7 October 1985. Palestinians, again.
This time, a splinter group of the PLO, Fatah Revolutionary Council, also known after it’s founder, Abu Nidal Organization.
(10) Which brings us back to the beginning.
Abu Nidal (Sabri Khalil al-Banna), believed to have planned the Munich attack before splitting on his own in ’74, was the SOB responsible for this group.
Dozens of attacks between 1974 and 2002 (Google them)
(11) He was in Baghdad for quite a while, living under the protection of Saddam Hussein in a villa property of the Iraqi secret police while he rained terror all over the world.
(13) In Aug 2002, Saddam began to feel the heat.
The paranoid twerp imagined that Nidal was working with Egypt, Kuwait and the US to snitch on Iraqi/al-Qa’ida connections (yes, they were real),
(14) and it is said that Nidal killed himself while being interrogated buy his landlords, the Mukhabarat…with multiple gunshots.
(15) Perhaps Saddam just suspected that Nidal would sell his mother and throw his daughter in the bargain if the price was right and just wanted to get rid of him just in case.
(16) The good news?
Abu Fucking Nidal, the terrorist who piled up corpses around the world for 30 years became one with the cosmos on 16 August 2002, and the rest of his organization was bombed into oblivion by the US in April of 2003.
(18) Oh, yes, The Guardian, that stalwart of Freedom and Democracy, called the SOB “the patriot turned psychopath” in its obituary.
Under what circumstances was he a "patriot" they did not say.
I will not argue with psychopath.
Think about that.
(20) Yes, Iran.
The Mullahs were always ready to assist al-Qa’ida and always did.
After nearly a year in Iran, Zarkawi moved back to Iraq where he set up shop under Saddam,s protection in 2002.
He’d been there before.
They were the media's mystical insurgents.
I remember the Achille Lauro.
I think that incident brought my awareness into play that globally, all was not well at all.
Catholic? What were they attempting to accomplish?
I remember a lot of these from the news in the 70s & 80s, but it still surprises me to go back to the history of the period and see how much more of this was going on than I remember.
Where were you at the time?
One week out from deployment to Tehran, was setting in the Day Room watching the events in Munich. The Black September Group. Yasser Arafat. August 1972.
You are entirety correct. It has stayed with me in every detail. Then on the way, the German Army presence in the Frankfurt airport with weapons on the ready.
The restrictions on passengers while on the ground in Istanbul and Beirut.
On alert when Yom Kippur started. October 1973.
My entire adult life.
@Debradelai I will never forget the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings and Leon Klinghoffer being murdered and thrown off the cruise liner. That is what made me aware of the murdering bastards. I remember incidents before that but it never really hit me as I was too young.
Leon Klinghoffer, never forget.
@Debradelai This thread competes for the No. 1 spot in my list of favorite Saul Montes-Bradley II threads ever.
Thanks are also due to @dianeseaman
Both of you brought verified facts to the debate about this subject. Absolutely Saddam had WMDs of various types and the capability to develop more of them.
Even without that, IMO the invasion would have been justifiable, but it certainly strengthens the case for it.
@Debradelai It was Biological weapons (botulinum toxin in the video I posted, but there were others as well). Thank you for providing a venue for the truth.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
