FOXNews?.com - Strange Stuff Passing for News 

Since when did people in Iraq start leaving artillery shells on the medians of roads? Why is FOX the only news source reporting this?

FOXNews.com - Top Stories - Tests Confirm Sarin in Iraqi Artillery Shell: "Another shell filled with mustard gas, possibly also part of an improvised explosive device (IED) was discovered on May 2, Defense Dept. officials said.

The second shell was found by passing soldiers in a median on a thoroughfare west of Baghdad. It probably was simply left there by someone, officials said, and it was unclear whether it was meant to be used as a bomb. "

Does anything think the following headline is somewhat alarming? After reading it, I was under the impression that the Kurds had evidence of WMDs. But read a couple paragraphs and you realize FOX isn't really interested in factual headlines.

Kurds: We Have Evidence of WMD: "

An Iraqi Kurdish official had no doubt similar substances will be found as the weapons hunt continues.

'We don't know where they are, but we suspect they are hidden in many locations in Iraq,' Howar Ziad, the Kurdish representative to the United Nations, told Fox News on Tuesday. 'It's quite possible that even the neighboring states who are against the reform of Iraq ... are helping the Saddamites in hiding.' "
