Evidence of Weapons of Mass Detruction (WMD)? Sounds like it when you hear of the explosive filled with sarin type nerve gas (Remember its use in the Japanese subway?), but not enough, apparently.

The military doesn’t believe that the individuals who tried to use the bomb knew there was gas in the IED (Improvised Explosive Device), though it is usually helpful when you do not underestimate you opponent. They think it was a device from looted Iraqi arsenals.

If looted Iraqi arsenals contained weapons with nerve gas? Is that not a suggestion that there were WMDs? According to Hans Blix and David Kay, this did not signify that Iraq had large stockpiles of such weapons. Large stockpiles?

There are those who attack the administration because they feel no evidence of WMDs has been found. Evidence to the contrary would lead them to claim no evidence of large stockpiles exists. And evidence of large stockpiles would lead them to claim what; there was no plan to use said weapons?

Clear Politics.
