Obama's Director of National Intelligence, General James R. Clapper, disagrees. He saw Iraq move its illicit weapons to Syria after Senator Rockefeller (D-WV) tipped Syria (Iraq's ally at the time) off to U.S. plans:
Quote:
The director [Clapper] of a top American spy agency said Tuesday that he believed that material from Iraq's illicit weapons program had been transported into Syria and perhaps other countries as part of an effort by the Iraqis to disperse and destroy evidence immediately before the recent war.

The treasonous stunt Rockefeller pulled before the war that prompted Iraq to move the weapons:
Quote:
Rockefeller (D-WV): "I took a trip by myself in January of 2002 to Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria, and I told each of the heads of state that it was my view that George Bush had already made up his mind to go to war against Iraq, that that was a predetermined set course which had taken shape shortly after 9/11."
That was an Exact quote. Transcript here:

Yep. Confirmed. Rockefeller tipped off Syria. He admitted it. That's why the weapons were moved.

Every Democrat in Washington at that time believed that Iraq had WMDs including the Clinton's.
