Back in 2014, I uncovered the official U.S. Army orders announcing a Meritorious Unit Commendation award for elements of the 203rd Military Intelligence Battalion for their work (from 2005-2006) in helping to destroy weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq.
Few people have ever cared about my exclusive (as far as I know) reporting. Instead, the narrative that the U.S. “lied” about Iraq having WMD continues to this day thanks to the nonstop disinformation campaign by journalists and others in the media.
Still, it’s important to periodically remind people of the truth. Here’s an excerpt of what I wrote in 2014.
Sometime during 2005-06 the 203rd Military Intelligence Battalion and its attached/subordinate units destroyed both chemical and biological weapons that the ISG did not find.
The 203rd MI Battalion served (at the time) as the tactical unit of the National Ground Intelligence Center, the Army unit responsible for providing general military intelligence, and scientific and technical intelligence on foreign ground forces. The Army recognized the 203rd and its attached/subordinate units with a Meritorious Unit Commendation. The MUC reads in part:
. . . Meanwhile the Technical Escort unit recovered, sampled and destroyed biological and chemical munitions . . .

And read the official U.S. Army orders announcing the Meritorious Unit Commendation award at the U.S. Army Center of Military History.
