Weapons of Mass Destruction?

“A facility near Baghdad that a US officer had said might finally be ‘smoking gun’ evidence of Iraqi chemical weapons production turned out to contain pesticide, not sarin gas as feared.”

Today’s headlines in the U.S. press are filled with speculation about whether or not the chemicals found at the site in Hindiyah, but, according to this source, new tests have already proven that what they found is, in fact, pesticides.

So, another day passes without the invading forces finding any of those WMDs that we were assured Saddam must have. The administration mentions the whole thing less and less, as though trying to downplay what was supposed to be one of the main reasons that we needed to invade. I’m hardly the only one who is skeptical about the whole thing, though the cynic in me says that, if in fact there are indeed no WMDs to find, some will be planted somewhere in Iraq.
