The following is an excerpt from a newsletter sent out by Henry Hyde's office. Henry Hyde is a represents Illinois' 6th District in the House of Representatives.

On May 15, a roadside bomb was found containing chemicals that, when combined, form sarin nerve agent. In June, U.S. weapons inspectors uncovered at least 10 artillery shells filled with banned chemical weapons. So far, 8,700 weapons depots have been found in Iraq, containing 1 million tons of arms.

The indictment states that Al Qaeda reaached an agreement with Saddam to work cooperatively in weapons development, including chemical and nuclear weapons.
