We found the WMDs!!!


Officials: U.S. didn’t find WMDs, despite claims -


WASHINGTON - Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday they have no evidence that Iraq produced chemical weapons after the 1991 Gulf War, despite recent reports from media outlets and Republican lawmakers…

Pentagon officials told NBC News that the munitions are the same kind of ordnance the U.S. military has been gathering in Iraq for the past several years, and “not the WMD we were looking for when we went in this time.”

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the issue.

“We were able to determine that [the missile] is, in fact, degraded and …

is consistent with what we would expect from finding a munition that was dated back to pre-Gulf War,” an intelligence official told NBC. "However, even in the degraded state, our assessment is that they could pose an up-to-lethal hazard if used in attacks against coalition forces.

Even FOX News got this one right -

A senior Defense Department official, however, made the following clarifications:

· These findings do not reflect a WMD capacity that was built up after 1991.
· These are not the WMDs this country and the rest of the world believed Iraq had.
· These are not the WMDs for which this country went to war.

This is a feeble attempt by Santorum to help his poor poll numbers. What a shame to mislead the people once again.
