Assuming Irag had no WMD because only small caches were recovered after OIF began is dangerously flawed logic.

For Reid, Pelosi, Durbin, Kennedy, Kerry and others still "Stuck on Stupid", and insisting that there were no WMD found in Iraq, here's a partial list of what didn't make it out of Iraq before the OIF invasion: 1.77 metric tons of enriched uranium, 1,700 gallons of chemical-weapon agents, chemical warheads containing the nerve agent cyclosarin, radioactive materials in powdered form designed for dispersal over population centers, artillery projectiles loaded with binary chemical agents, etc. (But Saddam had no WMD!)

It is dangerously flawed logic to assume that because only small caches of WMD were recovered, Iraq had no WMD.

As The Patriot noted in October, 2002, our well-placed sources in the region and intelligence sources with the NSA and NRO estimated that the UN Security Council's foot-dragging provided an ample window for Saddam to export some or all of his deadliest WMD materials and components. At that time, we reported that Allied Forces would be unlikely to discover Iraq's WMD stores, noting, "Our sources estimate that Iraq has shipped some or all of its biological stockpiles and nuclear WMD components into Iran and through Syria to southern Lebanon's heavily fortified Bekaa Valley."
