Sean Hannity: ‘I still think Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction’

Fox News host Sean Hannity believes Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction leading up to the US invasion of Iraq, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

During Wednesday’s edition of The Sean Hannity Show on the Premiere Radio Network, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich called in to discuss his position on foreign policy.

Hannity steered the conversation to Iraq where he asked Kasich’s thoughts on president Obama‘s handling of Isis and the Middle East.

The Sean Hannity Show:

JOHN KASICH: Part of the problem was we got in the middle of a civil war because we thought Saddam had weapons of mass destruction–

SEAN HANNITY: I still think he did.

KASICH: Pardon?

HANNITY: I still think he did. I think he got them out in the lead up to the war. And I think he brought them to Syria.

KASICH: Well, you know, maybe he did, but the fact is — you know, look, the fact is that if — well you say he had them, I don’t know. There’s no evidence to say he had them.

    I keep hearing in the presidential debates that President Bush made a mistake on there being weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Has anyone ever asked what happened to all of the chemical weapons that Saddam Hussein’s henchman ‘Chemical Ali’ Ali Hassan al-Majid used to destroy his own people in Iraq before Saddam Hussein’s fall? And how is it that all of the sudden Syria now has them without the apparent technology or scientific knowledge base to produce them. Has anyone ever considered that because we told them we were coming Iraq just moved them to Syria to hide them? That puzzles me.

    That would be due to a complete lack of a functioning brain, Sean, you f***ing idiot.

    They were WWII chemical weapons you speak of and were in the form of artillery rounds, and yes, those were recovered. They were not the main concern at the time however, as everyone knew of them. The issue was nuclear, and specifically, enriched Uranium. that could fuel a nuclear device, or be exploded as a dirty bomb. The fact was that the artillery rounds were not being used, as they were corroded and unsafe. Those stockpiles were destroyed by American forces upon discovery. They performed a complete inventory, then proceeded to destroy them in high temp incinerators. Most were mustard gas, with some nerve agents too. Our troops were briefed on such and they were issued nerve agent suppresses in the event Saddam used them.They were chemical weapons, not the radioactive materials and nuclear weapon advancements that Chaney and Bush was pushing. Those supposed materials and weapons were said to be in vehicles to make detection harder for his enemies. They knew Saddam had those artillery shells, as he had used them twice on the Iranians killing hundreds of thousands of them, and various times on his own citizenry (Kurdish Iraqis).. They just got too old for him to be able to use them safely. That is why when we invaded, the threat of Saddam using chemical weapons was being touted. Saddam had used both Mustard gas and nerve gas weapons on both the Kurds in northern Iraq, as well as during the two wars waged against the Iranians.
