WMD's found in Iraq...again

Developing story:
The United States has found 500 chemical weapons in Iraq since 2003, and more weapons of mass destruction are likely to be uncovered, two Republican lawmakers said Wednesday.

"We have found weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, chemical weapons," Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., said in a quickly called press conference late Wednesday afternoon.

Reading from a declassified portion of a report by the National Ground Intelligence Center, a Defense Department intelligence unit, Santorum said: "Since 2003, coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf War chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf War chemical munitions are assessed to still exist."
But...but...didn't Saddam tell the world he had destroyed ALL of his WMD's, regardless of whether they were created before 1991? Why, this revelation would mean that Saddam actually...lied! Who would have ever pegged Saddam Hussein as a liar?

For those of you on the left, the prior paragraph was sarcasm.
