Am I to assume that the "declaration" said these warheads were full?

Fox just said that the warheads are the type to carry chemicals. That they are illegal and that there is no chemical present.

Reporter is saying it is a "clear material breach."

That's kinda my point, that chemicals declared are now missing. Plus it seems that they shouldn't have the little beasties in any event.

Boom?

I wonder what excuse the Hollywood elites will come up with for Saddam now?

Mike Ferrell (Actor "MASH" = Hunnycut) will be the first to defend Saddam I'm sure

They also have a scientist that took a boxload of papers with him after the inspectors showed up at his house. He led inspectors to a mound of dirt in the desert and he is now being interviewed in a local hotel.

The clock is ticking!

Naah! Just wait a few more weeks, and it will get more interesting, revealing and embarassing to those who love Uncle Soddomite, as more stuff is revealed.

Warheads themselves constitute a breech. Stated earlier that inspectors are interested in a huge mound of dirt somewhere in Iraq.

I think the Hollywood community and their friends in high places should do this Country a great service by going to Iraq to be human shields to stop the war!

Hope we got his family out first.

One warhead is enough to declare them in 'material breach.'

Now I suspect the lefties will start hollering about going to the UN for a 'use of force' resolution.

This is just the tip of the warhead. Bush is sitting on much better evidence than this, including Al Qaeda connections. He and his staff have literally said as much.

Bush already has everything he needs to go to war, and war there will be.

Anything uncovered by the U.N. clown show is icing on the cake, but optional. However, I'm sure Bush and his intelligence sources would love it if he didn't have to reveal sensitive information to justify taking Iraq.

BREAKING NEWS U.N. weapons inspectors find 11 empty chemical warheads in "excellent condition" in Iraq. Details to come.

So Scott Ritter, I thought you said there is no way after all these years that these weapons would remain viable?

Storage area outside Baghdad

12 - 1 of particular interest

even if empty a 1st breakthrough by inspectors.

Attributing these things to hard intel from the US....to include recent scientists list and a mound of dirt.

One thing to keep in mind is that Saddam has nothing to lose once the smoking gun is revealed. There's no "out" for him, and he might as well start firing scuds before we're fully deployed.

I don't know if he'd do that or not, but it's something to consider.

They just said on Fox that the last two days the inspectors have been working with US intelligence sources to make their inspections. Looks like our intelligence was correct and they haven't even given them everything we have.

The warheads are now empty but no one knows what happened to the chemicals.

IIRC, chemical shells are usually binary -- they're relatively inert until two different chemicals are mixed together at the time the shell explodes.

In that case, the binary "innards" might be stored apart from the shells themselves. The existence of these shells implies that Iraq may (and probably does) have the rest of the chemicals in storage someplace else.

That is why I think that the US has been slow to provide intelligence until we are ready which is right around the corner IMO.
