Iraq WMD Moved by Russia!?

I have heard it said that there was no doubt Iraq had WMD from worldwide sources (before the war). Congress agreed as well as Great Britain, Germany, and France (FYI: Hillary Clinton even agreed with this when she voted to fund the war with John Kerry and the congress). So how could the Iraqi's get rid of it all then? Russia was the major WMD supplier to Iraq according to this article and they helped Iraq get rid of them. Click this link from Newsmax dated Feb. 19th 2006. This is supposedly from a high ranking pentagon source.

"The short answer to the question of where the WMD Saddam bought from the Russians went was that they went to Syria and Lebanon," former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense John A. Shaw told an audience Saturday at a privately sponsored "Intelligence Summit" in Alexandria, Va. ("

Why wouldn't the Bush Administration tell the world about this vs. take the heat for not finding significant WMD as they have had since the start of the war? Apparently the stakes are higher than we realize. Goes back to Iran, to stop a nuclear Iran we need Russia and China on our side. By the way Russia, China and France were the suppliers of WMD according to this article.

By the way: I know a friend of mine that has said that the US has provided WMD in the past. This to fight Iran during the previous year during the Iran-Iraq war. I don't need to get into this here but by all accounts Iraq should have disarmed according to UN and worldwide mandate.

While this information is based largely on a single official reported from a single source, the case for it may not be able to convict on, however it may be true, and it enlightening I believe.

Update: The source seems to be isolated and not supported. According to this artical he's been released from his job: Wikipedidia has other claims about him, however, I don't know what's true.
