Its a confirmation of reports in June that ISIS had taken control of a site where some of Saddams WMD arsenal remained.
Iraq has informed the United Nations that the Islamic State extremist group has taken control of a vast former chemical weapons facility northwest of Baghdad where 2,500 chemical rockets filled with the deadly nerve agent sarin or their remnants were stored along with other chemical warfare agents.
Iraqs U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim said in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon circulated Tuesday that terrorist groups entered the Muthanna site June 11 and seized weapons and equipment from the protection force guarding the facility.

But wait, I thought “Bush lied...”.
Were these some of the weapons of mass destruction that never met the standard of our “free press”?
Time to carpet bomb before it is to late.
Not possible. The MSM told me that the WMDs didnt exist. In fact, they still won’t report on these on tbe nightly “news.”
Bush and Cheney did us no favors by deciding to keep our knowledge of the transfer of WMD secret.
Of course we would have to have a president that gave a crap about anything besides his brother muslims.
Right now as this report is being read, thousands of liberal heads are exploding across America. And I would be enjoying it if our friggin border wasn't as porous as a sieve.
UNPOSSIBLE!!! There were no WMD’s, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid said so.
Greeeeaaaaat. *rolls eyes*
The more time passes, the worse Dubya looks. This should have been a no brainer--what did he tell the UN we were going in to Iraq for anyway?
Ha! I said when this was originally reported that they were after chemical weapons, while all the MSM peons were saying “its decommissioned!” BS, they knew what was there because Al-Douri told them and now they have it.
From what we saw in Tokyo, just a small amount of Sarin would be devastating. They could hit our embassy in the green zone with this and there would be no protection. It is time to pull out now before Obama gets people killed.
NOT GOOD: IDF confirms rockets fired by Hamas now have range of at least 62 miles
The same old stuff that’s been entombed there by the U.S. military for over a decade. Little if any of it is viable for any current warfare purpose. I hope I do not turn out to be wrong. If so, how is it conceivable that it existed right under the nose of U.S. forces for all those years?
Indeed1 One would think the US would have done away with these when we occupied Iraq.
How the hell does this happens when we had boots on the ground in these locations for a DECADE?
My lord, what a failure on our part to let this happen. These weapons should have been dismantled in 2004
I find it hard to believe that the USA would leave WMD’s in Iraq. Not buying this story as written.
So did we know about the stockpiles? I’ve never heard anything about them. Even from our own side’s leaders.
Why? It's the old, rotted stuff from the 80s(?) everyone already knew was there.
So now you KNOW why the EXEMPT whores in Congress
and their treasonous pRes_ _ent is leaving the border
open and ESCORTING the terrorists in.
Has anyone, anywhere, been arrested for ignoring
the warnings of BEFORE the Boston Atrocity?
or for giving MANPADs to the terrorists in Benghazi?
Not with this kabuki treasonous Congress.
