Here They Are, Hans! Come Take A Sniff!

Fox News is now reporting that the Pentagon says American forces have found and taken a "huge" 100 acre suspected chemical weapons facility near Najaf in Iraq. The UN inspectors say they have no knowledge of the plant - although the UN inspector did inspect the town and its environs.

UPDATE: Reports that US troops have found a suspected chemical factory in Iraq were "premature", the Pentagon said today.



General Tommy Franks, head of the US Central Command, would not confirm whether chemical weapons had been found at a plant near the town of Najaf in central Iraq that the Pentagon said was under close scrutiny.

"I can say it would not surprise me if there were chemicals in the plant and it would not surprise me if there weren't," he told reporters at Centcom's forward command post here.
