As the Blogfaddah notes, it’d be best to withhold judgement until and unless this is confirmed, but if accurate, it’s the most important story of the year:
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.
I’d say everybody is quite justified in being skeptical at this point (where would the warheads have come from?), but if it’s true…
UPDATE: Heh. According to Reuters, the report is “stupid.” C’mon, who do you believe, some random Iraqi paper, or Reuters?
Okay, scratch that–I’d trust the Iraqis, too. But in this case, Reuters is probably right. Broken clock, once a day, etc…
