EXCLUSIVE Secret Iraq WMD Report -- Partially Unclassified & Available @ PJM
PJM in Seattle
September 1, 2006 4:51 PM

This now unclassified portion of the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC) report on pre-1991 Iraqi Chemical Weapons Recovered in Iraq reveals some chilling points concerning weapons not recovered but assessed to exist.
* Munitions recovered - 500.
* Some contained degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent.
* Pre-Gulf War munitions are assessed to still exist outside of coalition control.
* Remaining uncontrolled weapons could be sold on the black market.
* Terrorist and Insurgent groups inside and outside of Iraq desire to acquire and use chemical weapons.
* Condition of weapons uncertain. Some stilll potentially lethal. Many degraded.

The full 34-page NGIC Report was initially published on April 4 of this year, but partially declassified (The 7 pages available HERE.) on July 31.

Subsequent to the publication of the NGIC report, PJM has learned the following. In early August on a patrol north of baghdad, us soldiers made another startling and important discovery. Searching near an Iraqi construction site, the troops uncovered at least 240 chemical weapon shells. Although they had not been filled with any agents, they were still more remnants from SaddamÂ’s WMD stockpiles.

For those keeping score, this most recent discovery raises the total number of chemical weapons found in Iraq since 2003 to more than 700.

As referenced above, the full 7-page PDF document may also be downloaded FROM THIS LINK. (1.1 megabyte)

Background on the report can be found @ SaddamÂ’s WMD

Hmm...some old, possibly degraded chemical weapons that we knew about well before the first gulf war are unaccounted for and not in coalition hands. Maybe they're unaccounted for because we attacked Iraq and threw it into chaos?

If they want to concentrate on something, it ought to be nukes. It's not that hard to manufacture mustard gas; it's been around 100 years and Osama could easily afford his own lab.

Perfect example Numero Uno. No WMDs are "the" WMDs if the cache isn't measured in metric tons.

Guns have been around quite awhile too. Think we ought let all the inmates in Joliette have one?
