    After all the recent hoop-la over there being absolutely, positively, no way, no how, no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, I ran across this very interesting article.

    I'm sure it will be picked apart by many, but have at it.

    I'd read that too at hindustanitimes.com but could never find a second source. Wonder why it's not in more sources yet?

    Sorry Jim. I hadn't noticed mine was a duplicate thread.

    The last I can find on this story is this quote:

    That was just a quick copy and paste at the end of an article I was reading. I hadnt even heard the story to begin with... Id like to hear more on the story though, i.e., exactly what it was they found, be it artefacts looted from a museum, or ones laced with chemicals.

    No problem at all! I didn't expect you to go back and re-read all the articles posted here before you arrived. :)

    I would love to know the story. Was probably someone smuggling smokes or something like that. I can't imagine it being anything weapons related though - why wouldn't ANY papers in the US report it? Somebody jumped the gun on a story before finding out the facts.
