This Could Change Everything

An anonymous contractor with an intelligence background claims to have information that, if verified, will change the discussion about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction forever.

World Net Daily is reporting that an unnamed "former intelligence analyst" working as a civilian contractor (presumably in Iraq) has in his possession audio recordings of Saddam Hussein discussing in depth with other Iraqi officials the existence of, and ongoing work on, an Iraqi WMD program. In pertinent part, the article goes on:
The highly confidential audio was overlooked when it was found in a warehouse along with many other untranslated Iraqi intelligence files, according to the contractor. The recordings are very significant because they may contain audio of Saddam's secret intentions regarding weapons of mass destruction, he says.

. . .

Attorney John Loftus, president of the [International] Intelligence Summit, recently stated, in regards to the highly confidential audiotapes, "Saddam's secret office recordings continued well into the year 2000. In all, they contain at least 12 hours of totally candid discussions with his senior aides. Clearly, after these tapes have been verified and corroborated, they will be able to provide a few definitive answers to some very important-and controversial-weapons of mass destruction questions." [Emphasis added.]
The article also mentions how this thus-far-anonymous analyst-turned-contractor intends to present his finding to the Second Annual International Intelligence Summit, which is slated for President's Day weekend in Washington, D.C.

I will reserve further statement about the content of these audio recordings (most of which remains undisclosed), pending verification of their authenticity (although a discussion tonight between WABC radio talk show host John Batchelor and Intelligence Summit president John Loftus seemed to imply that Loftus' contacts inside the National Security Agency have already verified that the primary voice on the recordings is in fact Saddam Hussein's).
