1) US Senator Rick Santorum is a nut.

2) US Senator Rick Santorum is in a desperate race for reelection. His opponent is leading by 23%. So it's for the Big Lie. WMDs. Terrorize the sheep into voting correctly.

3) The story is bogus. One reporter called up the Pentagon to check on this and the officer actually laughed.

4) And you are so willing to believe, that you'll fall for Santorum's lies.

Last week, you fell for a bogus novel about al Qaeda cyanide attacks.

Next, you'll report that Iraq has ducks and those are really dangerous.

Subject: [lit-ideas] Iraq WMD Disclosure

Political football over the disclosure of finding lots of pre-91 Chemical and Nerve Gas Agents. Iraq did have a whole bunch of stuff that could be sold on the black market. That hardly matters now, does it? Unless the insurgency or al-Qaeda finds and uses them.

http://www.breitbart.com/news/2006/06/22/060622055545.07o4imol.html Hundreds of chemical weapons found in Iraq: US intelligence

"Since 2003, Coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent," said an overview of the report unveiled by Senator Rick Santorum and Peter Hoekstra, head of the intelligence committee of the House of Representatives."


A Pentagon official . . . said that all the weapons were pre-1991 vintage munitions "in such a degraded state they couldn't be used for what they are designed for."

The official, who asked not to be identified, said most were 155 millimeter artillery projectiles with mustard gas or sarin of varying degrees of potency.


The intelligence overview published Wednesday stressed that the pre-Gulf War Iraqi chemical weapons could be sold on the black market.

"Use of these weapons by terrorists or insurgent groups would have implications for coalition forces in Iraq. The possibility of use outside Iraq cannot be ruled out," it said.


"But this says: Weapons have been discovered; more weapons exist. And they state that Iraq was not a WMD-free zone, that there are continuing threats from the materials that are or may still be in Iraq," he [Hoekstra]said.
