Rumsfeld on WMDs, Today

QUESTION:  Mr. Secretary, there has been a lot made on Capitol

Hill about these chemical weapons that were found and may be quite

old.  But do you a real concern of these weapons from Saddam’s past

perhaps having an impact on U.S. troops who are on the ground in Iraq

right now?

      RUMSFELD :  Certainly.  What has been announced is accurate, that

there have been hundreds of canisters or weapons of various types

found that either currently have sarin in them or had sarin in them,

and sarin is dangerous.  And it’s dangerous to our forces, and it’s a

concern.  

     So obviously, to the extent we can locate these and destroy them,

it is important that we do so.  And they are dangerous.  Anyone — I’m

sure General Casey or anyone else in that country would be concerned

if they got in the wrong hands.  

     They are weapons of mass destruction .  They are harmful to human

beings. And they have been found.  And that had not been by Saddam

Hussein, as he inaccurately alleged that he had reported all of his

weapons .  And they are still being found and discovered.
