Inpspectors in the Middle East searching for the elusive WMD's hit "pay dirt" today, finding uranium enrichment parts, not in Iraq, but right next door in neighboring Iran.

CNN Story

International Atomic Energy Agency officials found "P-2" centrifuge parts that are "far superior, more sophisticated than anything" that the Iranians have revealed publicly, the official said.

Administration officials say the P-2 parts are similar to those found in Libya, and might have been obtained by Iran through the nuclear black market sales organized by the institute headed by Pakistani scientist A.Q. Khan. However, the officials caution that the source of the materials is not known at this time.

Well, just when the Bush administration is hard pressed for proof of WMD's, something is found. In Iran, however I always thought that WMD's were there, as well as Iraq. Who is to say these were not moved to Iran from Iraq once the coalition attack was coming? It will just take time to find them.
