Those weapons were forgotten about,
I honestly think Saddam did obey and try to destroy the large quantities he made via the Iran/Iraq war, there's stories going around about how
scientists emptied the poisons into lakes and rivers which were to close to Saddam's palaces thus, their imminent torture.
These weapons were likely mistakes, not written properly on a map or just ignored in the mad haste of trying to destroy everything, maybe even the
officials in charge of munitions in that 'region' were killed, thus no one really knew what laid there thereafter.
as I recall the Bush admin accused him of
1. having STOCKPILES
2. having MASS production facilities
3. having mobile production plants
4. having them deployed and prepared for a 30minute attack
in a country awash with millions upon millions of munitions, 500 30+ year old mortar shells are a mute point.
