Un Inspectors Find Missile Warheads In Iraq

"During the course of their inspection, the team discovered 11 empty 122 mm chemical warheads and one warhead that requires further evaluation," UN Spokesman Hiro Ueki said in a statement.

"The warheads were in excellent condition and were similar to ones imported by Iraq during the late 1980s. The team used portable X-ray equipment to conduct preliminary analysis of one of the warheads and collected samples for chemical testing."

Is this planted evidence? You can bet on it. Hussein was starting to figure out that it was strange that no WMD were being found at all ... a sure sign that things were being hidden or transported to places UN inspectors had already been. So it makes sense for him to leave something laying around that's fairly harmless ... these are empty warheads ... but still gives the UN a chance to say something was found, problem solved, and hope the issue goes away ... while Hussein can rail against US imperialism and pretend it was planted by us.

Hussein didn't stay in power this long by being stupid. Unless you hear about mass executions in those bunkers next week, you can bet Hussein was just giving up those warheads as a sacrifical lamb.
