As The Gun Smokes

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. forces near Baghdad found a weapons cache of around 20 medium-range missiles equipped with potent chemical weapons, the U.S. news station National Public Radio reported on Monday.

NPR, which attributed the report to a top official with the 1st Marine Division, said the rockets, BM-21 missiles, were equipped with sarin and mustard gas and were “ready to fire.” It quoted the source as saying new U.S. intelligence data showed the chemicals were “not just trace elements.”

Of course, Kofi Annan is on record as saying that he is going to assume that any weapons found are US plants until the UN goes and finds them on their own.
