Hundreds of WMDs Found in Iraq

The U.S. has found 500 chemical weapons in Iraq since 2003, and more weapons of mass destruction are likely to be uncovered, two Republican lawmakers said Wednesday.

Reading from a declassified portion of a report by the National Ground Intelligence Center, a Defense Department intelligence unit, Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) said: “Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent.”

The weapons are thought to be manufactured before 1991, but they do show that Saddam Hussein was lying when he said all weapons had been destroyed, and it shows that years of weapons inspections did not uncover these munitions.
