“…A 155 mm artillery projectile filled with four liters of Sarin nerve gas was found in Baghdad in May [14] 2004; certainly that proves that Saddam Hussein was lying when he claimed to have destroyed every munition from his stockpile. When the shell was found, in a roadside improvised explosive device, the news media downplayed the discovery, claiming the shell was simply a ‘forgotten’ leftover of Iraq’s war with Iran in the 1980s.”
