Rumsfeld says Iraq ready to use banned weapons

Posted: Mon, 24 Mar 2003 6:05 AEDT

"Iraqi military commanders appear to have received discretion to use chemical and biological weapons but US troops have not yet found any such weapons, US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says.

Mr Rumsfeld told CBS television's Face the Nation program it was unclear whether any Iraqi commanders were planning to use weapons of mass destruction. They would be "hunted down for the rest of their lives" if they did, he said."

It is believed that Donny received this information from his invisible special friend, Neville the talking egg cup.
