Chemical Weapons Found in Iraq-Except They Came After the US Invasion of Iraq

15 August 2005 at 6:36:26 AM

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Early tests of chemicals seized at a suspected insurgent hideout in northern Iraq indicate they included substances that could be used in explosives, the U.S. military said Sunday.

About 1,500 gallons of various chemicals were found in what the military called an insurgent chemical production facility in Mosul, 225 miles northwest of Baghdad.

Col. Henry Franke, a nuclear, biological, and chemical defense officer, said chemical samples indicate that the facility could have been used to produce explosives, and that it appeared to be associated with insurgents. However, he said no explosives — only their components — were found....

Officials said the seized chemicals do not appear to be linked to Saddam Hussein’s former government.

The U.S. invaded Iraq in March 2003 to destroy Saddam’s purported weapons of mass destruction. No stockpiles were ever found.

U.S. arms investigators have said there was evidence that Iraqi insurgent groups had tried to manufacture chemical weapons, including one group that recruited a Baghdad chemist who tried and failed to make a nerve agent.
