IRAQI CHEMICAL WARHEADS: WHAT WAS FOUND?

Staff Report, [January 18, 2003]

 

 

[HollywoodInvestigator.com]  The below image of Iraqi pipes (and commentary) was submitted to the Hollywood Investigator, received by us via e-mail on January 18, 2003. Are these the 12 "chemical warhead" containers recently found by U.N. weapons inspectors.


 

The above jpeg (image and caption) was created by John Chuckman, who offers commentary at YellowTimes.org.

However see the below image:

 

 

The above was found posted at FreeRepublic.com, attributed to Reuters by the below caption:

 

Thu Jan 16, 6:07 PM ET. Iraqi television footage shows a U.N. weapons inspector standing over one of the empty warheads said by the U.N. to be designed to carry chemical warfare agents, at the Ukhaider Ammunition Storage Area 75 miles south of Baghdad on January 16, 2003. A U.S. official said the warheads did not represent a 'smoking gun' that could mean war. (Reuters)

 

Would Iraqi television broadcast the footage?

While the above report quotes a "U.S. official" stating that the warheads did not represent a "smoking gun," White House's Ari Fleischer says the twelve "empty chemical warheads" represent a "troubling and serious" find. He also cites the U.N. as saying that the warheads are in "excellent condition.

Colin Powell says Iraq is failing to comply with U.N. resolution. But CIA says the chemical warheads never contained chemicals, and have "little significance" regarding U.N. noncompliance.
