Weapons of Mass Destruction? From Today's Times:

To the east, at Aziziya, marines responded to battlefield intelligence gleaned from an Iraqi special forces prisoner and rushed to a girls' school, where the prisoner said groups of Iraqi men had knocked down a wall to hide something in the courtyard and then laid fresh concrete over it in the course of three nights.

The intelligence report raised the immediate suspicion that chemical or biological weapons might have been hidden under the concrete, Marine officers said.

"We don't have a clue, but we are going to dig it up and see," said Maj. Gen. James N. Mattis, the Marine commander in the area.
