Saddam Tapes: WMD smoking gun?

ABC is to air secret audiotapes of Saddam Hussein on Nightline on Wednesday, 2/15.

( - Secret audiotapes of Saddam Hussein discussing ways to attack America with weapons of mass destruction will be the subject of an ABC "Nightline" program Wednesday night, a former federal prosecutor told Cybercast News Service.

The tapes are being called the "smoking gun" of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq. The New York Sun reported that the tapes have been authenticated and currently are being reviewed by the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

Woohoo! Time to start monitoring DailyKonspiracyKos and DemocraticUnderground for paranoid, over the top ramblings.

If these tapes are authenticated I predict you will hear Moonbats saying that Saddam was forced to make these tapes. Either that or that Saddam is in league with the Bush Administration.

John O adds:

Harold C. Hutchison of Strategy Page reminds us that one of the biggest uncovered stories of the war on terror is the mountain of data and documents from Saddam's regime now in US possession. Their eventual translation poses problems for some:
These documents have another advantage – they will be words from the regime itself, and will be harder to mischaracterize as fabricated intelligence. These will also leave a number of media outlets, activists, and politicians in a real bind – as other documents may point toward Saddam's weapons of mass destruction (at least document title suggests that Saddam's regime carried out deception operation regarding the WMD programs), and others may provide details into the setup of the insurgency. The truth is out there – in millions of documents and on hard drives. It just has to be accessed, translated, and released.
Why the Bush adminstration hasn't placed a higher priority on translating this information is beyond me.

Mac Ranger has a good post on this with several links and follow-ups.

What will be the best conspiracy theories from the left? I mean besides the easy ones like the tapes are fake?
