No WMDs in Iraq?

Looks like Saddam was hiding weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in Iraq after all. Much ado has made about the inability of Coalition forces to find WMDs in Iraq; little ado is made when WMDs are found. But in fairness, even the BBC reported that Polish troops recovered 17 warheads last month in southern Iraq. Some of these warheads tested positive for cyclosarin, which is much more deadly than sarin. According to the Beeb,
…the ammunition had been buried in order to avoid it being discovered by UN weapons inspectors.
Gee, er, ah... wasn’t that a main point of going to war in the first place? So what if “the agent was so deteriorated it posed no threat.” The point is Saddam was hiding the weapons. I can only wonder why the Bush team isn’t trumpeting this find.
What is most disturbing is that Iraqi “militants” (thugs, murderers) were trying to buy these warheads for use in their campaign of mayhem:
[Polish] Gen Dukaczewski said the shells had been purchased in June after individuals contacted officials in its military zone in south-central Iraq.
Thank you Poland. Its nice to know the U.S. has at least a few courageous allies.
