Tests Confirm Sarin Gas in Baghdad Bomb

Comprehensive testing has confirmed the presence of the chemical weapon sarin in the remains of a roadside bomb discovered this month in Baghdad, a defense official said Tuesday.

The determination, made by a laboratory in the United States that the official would not identify, verifies what earlier, less-thorough field tests had found: the bomb was made from an artillery shell designed to disperse the deadly nerve agent on the battlefield

"Military officials have said the shell bore no labels to indicate it was anything except a normal explosive shell, the type used to make scores of roadside bombs in Iraq "

Well that settles it. Iraq had at least one chemical weapon. With the mustard gas shell, they had two.

I hope more are found before they are used against us.

I think they should advertise a chemical weapons buyback program. Offer $1000.00 for more Sarin shells.
