Colin Powell – UN Security Council – Feb 5th 2003
The material I will present to you comes from a variety of sources. Some are U.S. sources. And some are those of other countries.
Some of the sources are technical, such as intercepted telephone conversations and photos taken by satellites. Other sources are people who have risked their lives to let the world know what Saddam Hussein is really up to.
My colleagues, every statement I make today is backed up by sources, solid sources. These are not assertions. What we’re giving you are facts and conclusions based on solid intelligence. I will cite some examples, and these are from human sources.
HOW DARE THEY QUESTION THE GOOD PEOPLE AT THE CIA!!!
Their analysis is based on the report from a Ukrainian cybersecurity company, a nation that just happened to be at war with Russia at the time.
I would post some videos of current democrat senators calling the 17 US intelligence agencies filthy liars, but apparently they thought of this before I did and that shit has been scrubbed from the internets.
