Fox, I think, scored the story first, but here’s a less-boosterish version from ABC News:
Reports from several sources indicate that US Marines may have found possible evidence of Iraqi nuclear weapons at an abandoned complex south of Baghdad.
According to an article in today’s Washington Post, Marines have discovered high levels of radiation at the Tuwaitha nuclear site. Marines have held the site since Sunday, and have found high levels of radiation inside, according to embedded journalists.
The discovery of radiation has prompted speculation that the site, Iraq’s only internationally sanctioned site for nuclear material, may have been used to develop weapons grade uranium.
We’ll see how the story pans out, but right now it seems to be a good time for Chirac, Schroeder, Annan & Co. to start blushing.
Assuming, of course, they know how.
