This is the second chemical weapon shell found in Iraq...: "The general said the Iraqi Survey Group, headed by Charles Duelfer, would determine if the shell's discovery indicated Saddam possessed chemical weapons before the U.S. invasion last year. Officials in Washington said another shell -- this one containing mustard gas -- was found 10 days ago in Iraq."

Mustard gas is some horrible stuff. I had severe mustard gas on Saturday after a lunch of Corned Beef on Rye with a very nice spicy brown mustard. Deadly deadly stuff. After the cat passed out, the wife made me work outside all day.

But seriously, why no news of the mustard gas until now. That seems odd.

I guess if the soldiers in Abu Ghraib had been using the mustard gas shell to taunt Iraqi prisoners, the media might have covered it.
