I Wonder If These Qualify As WMD?

No confirmation on this yet, but this would be an absolute WMD slam dunk.

Baghdad, Iraq, Jul. 21 (UPI) — Iraqi security reportedly discovered three missiles carrying nuclear heads concealed in a concrete trench northwest of Baghdad, official sources said Wednesday.

The official daily al-Sabah quoted the sources as saying the missiles were discovered in trenches near the city of Tikrit, the hometown of ousted Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.

“The three missiles were discovered by chance when the Iraqi security forces captured former Baath party official Khoder al-Douri who revealed during interrogation the location of the missiles saying they carried nuclear heads,” the sources said.

They pointed out that the missiles were actually discovered in the trenches lying under six meters of concrete and designed in a way to unable sophisticated sensors from discovering nuclear radiation.Since Iraq is not known to have had the capability to produce such weapons, it will be interesting to see which country they actually came from.

Update:

BAGHDAD, Iraq (Reuters) – Iraq’s Interior Ministry dismissed as “stupid” a report in a local newspaper Wednesday that said three nuclear missiles had been found near Saddam Hussein’s hometown of Tikrit.

A senior U.S. military official told reporters he had no information on the report in the Iraqi newspaper al-Sabah. He said officials were checking the report.
