Pentagon admits: U.S. forces found no WMD in Iraq
U.S. special operations troops combing Iraq for Scud missiles and chemical or biological weapons have found none so far, a senior American military officer said Saturday.
Maj. Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the vice director of operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Pentagon news conference that the Iraqis have not fired any Scuds and that U.S. forces searching airfields in the far western desert of Iraq have uncovered no missiles or launchers.
McChrystal said the number of Iraqi prisoners of war was between 1,000 and 2,000. (Albawaba.com)
