“…when Syrian president Bashar al-Assad asked for help from Jordan and Iraq [for flood relief after a dam burst on June 4, 2002], Saddam knew what he would do. For him, the disaster in Syria was a gift, and there, posing as shipments of supplies and equipment sent from Iraq to aid the relief effort, were Iraq’s WMDs. Weapons and equipment were transferred both by land and by air.”

 – Georges Sada with Jim Nelson Black, Saddam’s Secrets, Page 259
