I have posted that link to the USA Today report many times here, this is the first time ANYONE did any fact check.<quoted text>
"suspected" Sarin gas?...or did you just want us to see the two gay soldiers in bed together....sweet.
"In the course of locating seven weapons caches in a single block around a mosque in northeast Fallujah, an Iraqi platoon Wednesday found a suitcase full of vials labeled "Sarin," a deadly nerve agent.
While further analysis determined that the find was probably part of a Soviet test kit with samples, its discovery in a room with mortar shells appeared to indicate an intent to weaponize the material.
...Those are marked as samples of soman, sarin and V- agents, the three main sorts of nerve gas. The Russian matches the English label, "For operating instructions..." and the German seems to be "Handle with Care."
"It turns out they were not vials of Sarin, but test kits for detecting Sarin."
You are 100% correct it was a test kit (most likely to test for water contamination).
The scary thing is that it was in the possession of the INSURGENTS!
The very fact that they have that is then "probable cause" to believe they also had Sarin Nerve gas. When you look at the timeline of WMD being shipped to Syria, then you have reports of Sarin Nerve Gas used to Kill Civilians coupled with "Russian missiles/bombs"
and a 30 foot Russian ICBM was found in Fallujah!
THEN we have a very observant U.N Sec Gen. comment:
"This is the most significant confirmed use of chemical weapons against civilians since Saddam Hussein used them in Halabja (Iraq) in 1988," U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said. "The international community has pledged to prevent any such horror from recurring, yet it has happened again."
If you had enough intelligence to research the first story (USA Today Sarin Nerve Gas Kit), you can surely admit that no one can then say there were no WMD in Iraq with any degree of certainty.
Then we have a more important issue for America!
Just the kind of story the LSM and WhiteHouse would keep under wrap.
"Ministry says cell working for group planned attacks with remote-controlled planes in Iraq, Europe and North America."
