Cosgrove 'disappointed' WMD not yet found

Chief of the Australian Defence Force Peter Cosgrove says he is disappointed weapons of mass destruction (WMD) have not yet been found in Iraq.

General Cosgrove says coalition leaders have always anticipated a range of possibilities in conflict and maintains the war plan is on track.

As for weapons of mass destruction, he says Saddam Hussein has had many opportunities to hide them away.

"Yes of course [I'm] disappointed because it would have been lovely to have crossed the border from Kuwait and stumble over the first bunker, full of WMD, [I'm] disappointed but really that was hardly likely," he said.

Sorry about that Pete old cobber. Really, I am sorry for your loss, but that's showbiz. Maybe next time, but at least the war plan is on track. (Mantra, mantra, mantra.)
