of course they were there
I'll go back to what that one jerky inspector said: "If they don't show us where they are, we'll never find them". No need for such a statement UNLESS he believed they had them. We know Saddam had dual use manufacturing plants and the inspector verified it many times.
You know, there were actually news articles about some of these at the time—carefully downplayed and eventually scrubbed. Some of us still have them archived on our personal computers. Lots of us knew about this all along, but the Bush admin let the ‘Rats run with the lies that there were not WMD.
President Bush did a poor job in getting information such as this out to the public. One of his glaring weaknesses was to take too many punches from the left and not strike back.
Time will bring about a total vindication of Dubya on this one too.
That sarin and mustard gas shells were found in Iraq is pretty well known. All you need to do is search Sarin Mustard Iraq to find old stories on this:
You may find even more if you google Iraq and each type of gas alone. But you are banging your head against the wall, the left and particularly the left media do not letf facts get in the way of their narrative.
The presence of EMPTA was deemed so serious it was enough for President Clinton to order an attack on the Sudanese Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in 1998. If this batch of Wikileak material reveals they found any EMPTA or VX it will be very interesting.
Let’s not forget about the Yellow Cake that was found there too.
Joe Wilson and his beotch Valerie should be held to answer too.
The Associated Press announced that UNMOVIC inspectors have found dozens of engines from banned al-Samoud 2 (SA2) missiles, which were shipped out of Iraq as "scrap metal."

(Bio-Chemical Weapons & Saddam: A History.) Various Sources | 02-20-03 | PsyOp
I do not have the source of the following, it was a letter from a GI to his father:
He said that there were caches all over the place, buildings filled to the ceiling with boxes of small-arms ammo, equipment, including new chemical-warfare suits, as well as old Gulf War I ammo strewn around the desert areas.
American ordnance experts have stated that there were at least 10,000 such sites that they found (so far), spread across a country the size of California, and no one knows how much material, possibly including weapons of mass destruction (chemical, biological, nuclear) might still lie beneath the sands there. Some planes were found buried under the sand while one photo my son brought back showed a MIG-25 parked in a cornfield; another in the driveway of someone's house.
The total estimated weight of the Iraqi arms caches so far has been calculated to be two and a half times that of the total arms in the whole United States, some 1 million tons or more.
Now that a major from the 3rd has come forward and explained that his small unit had hauled away about 210 tons (quite possibly including some of the claimed 270 tons) for destruction at a designed ordnance handling site, Sen. Kerry began to slink away like a coward in the night, never apologizing to the brave American soldiers of the 3rd and the 101st/82nd Airborne who had fought and then guarded those sites during their stays there.
The American press did what our enemies could not, they destroyed our Military Veracity with out and out lies....the Soros Propaganda Machine and the Anti-American politicians are still doing their best to destroy America now under a vile Socialist/Marxist president and a vicious congress.
VOTE THESE BUMS OUT IN NOVEMBER!
Everyone knows he had mustard gas artillery shells, that was not the WMD they were looking for and Bush would not have invaded Iraq over those.
Now if they had found advanced biological weapons or tactical nukes that would be another issue entirely.
Told ya so!! OIF vet
The entire media was in an uproar about the secret weapons Saddam was hiding outside Bagdad. But somehow they forget the alarm THEY sounded.
