Nuclear Weapons Reported in Iraq

Seen first in Ramblings Journal

The Washington Times is carrying a UPI story about three nuclear tipped missiles being found during an ICDC raid in Northern Baghdad.

The official daily al-Sabah quoted the sources as saying the missiles were discovered in trenches near the city of Tikrit, the hometown of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
"The three missiles were discovered by chance when the Iraqi security forces captured former Baath party official Khoder al-Douri who revealed during interrogation the location of the missiles saying they carried nuclear heads," the sources said.

They pointed out that the missiles were actually discovered in the trenches lying under six meters of concrete and designed in a way to unable sophisticated sensors from discovering nuclear radiation. (Emphasis mine)


BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's Interior Ministry has dismissed as "stupid" a report in a local newspaper that said three nuclear missiles were found near Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit.

I want to impress upon you that this may turn out to be a false alarm. Since the report came out of an interrogation, it may be a ploy to lead security forces on a wild goose chase.

Liberals and Leftists still don't get the big picture on this issue though :)
