NPR (of all places) reports that Marines with the 101st Airborne (???) have discovered about 20 medium range BM-21 missiles equipped with sarin and/or mustard gas warheads near Baghdad. Smoking gun? Or more fog? We’ll see.

Update 12:11 7 Apr 2003

I’ve discovered that the BM-21 missile is actually an unguided 122mm rocket usually fired from a multiple-tube rocket launch system (MRLS) mounted on a truck. It has a maximum range of about 20km.
