Why did we wait so long to hear about these WMD's? I don't know the answer.
The Belmont Club is running a post called "The Gas Shells". They are offering an explanation. Check it out:
"General Tom Mcinerney is reporting on Fox Hannity and Colmes right now that that the administration has been keeping this low profile to avoid exposing 3 of the 5 members of the UN Security council; Russia, China, and France.
McInerney says these weapons will be traced to these countries, and asserts it is well known that Russia helped Saddam move most of his WMD stockpiles out of Iraq before the war."
