Yahoo! News - U.S. Army Says It Finds Shell with Sarin Agent in Iraq:: This isn't that big news. Who knows if the people who used the shell even knew it had the nerve toxin in it.

What I would like to comment on is in the last paragraph:
The United States launched its invasion of Iraq last year, accusing then-president Saddam Hussein of developing chemical, biological and possibly nuclear weapons. Failure to find such weapons has stirred criticism in the United States and Britain, Washington's closest ally in the war.

"president Saddam Hussein"? This is a pet peeve of mine. I was unaware of a democratic process in Iraq before we invaded. I had thought that he was a murderous dictator, actively seeking to attack America & Israel while torturing his citizens, killing them en mass, bribing UN officials to ignore his laundering of humanitarian aid money and goods, and posing for playing cards.

But I suppose the press would like to focus on his leadership skills, point out his title as president, and ignore the rest. It is almost like they have an agenda...
