Saddamites: I can see how this is going to play out, following up on your post. We find omissions from Saddam's report on his weapons. This means we know of weapons from back in 1998 he didn't report in 2002. It is certainly also possible that we will find additional weapons that the report left out. To all this, the French will say: "See, the inspections and the international focus are working. There is no need to bomb Baghdad." Now, this has a point...to a point. The problem is that one day, some day, Saddam will use weapons from his last hidden cache that the inspectors hadn't quite gotten to, and after his 15th chance to revise his report.
