IRAQ WARHEADS NO "SMOKING GUN"Bush Administration officials are calling the chemical-capable warheads found in Iraq yesterday "an interesting development...but not exactly a smoking gun," according to the Los Angeles Times."It would have been more interesting if the warheads were filled with chemicals or if there'd been a larger stockpile or if they'd been newer, which would show that they're making them now," a senior U.S. official said.The warheads were found at a well-known weapons site -- the Ukhaydir depot, 75 miles south of Baghdad. Coalition forces bombed the facility in 1991, and some veterans believe that their "Gulf War Illness" stemmed from exposure to Ukhaydir's mustard gas. The Defense Department denies this.
