The castor beans were inaccurately labeled as fertilizer.
From CASTOR BEANS AND CASTOR OIL :
The pomace, or cake remaining after the oil is pressed out, is poisonous to livestock but can be used for fertilizer.
But those 300 bags were not filled with the "cake remaining after the oil is pressed out."

I'm with you on these finds. The media is "pressing" with these reports, meaning they are coming across as goofy which makes the administration look bad. Nothing to indicate an active program. Finding a part buried under a rose bush for 13 years isn't exactly indicative of a vibrant active program. Finding castor beans on someone's farm is forced news, not meaningful news.
There are Iraqis who know the state of any illegal programs active immediately prior to the military action to remove Saddam. The problem appears to be that they think it wiser to ride out the American presence in silence rather than risk reprisal after we leave.
