    When intelligence services are subject to excessive political influence, nothing good will emerge.

    IIRC, Iraq had chemical weapons. But they were destroyed under international supervision. The George.W. Bush claim of WMD's was that Iraq still has these weapons and used the intelligence they had to destroy Iraq.
    I don't think US can use the discovery of a few shells as proof that their invasion was on valid grounds. Unless they unearth stockpiles of such weapons which I doubt.
    If they were captured by US, we would have already known about it.
    If they were with the former Iraqi army, then they would have already used it against western targets.
    A few shells here and there is no justification of the invasion.
