- Charles Aldinger, "U.S. Assessing Reports of Sarin Gas in Iraq," Reuters, May 17, 2004: "The United States, which invaded Iraq over alleged weapons of mass destruction, said on Monday an exploded artillery shell found there will be tested further to confirm indications that it was armed with sarin nerve agent."
- "Inspectors: Sarin possibly left over from pre-Gulf War," Olympian News Service, May 18, 2004: "The former top U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, David Kay, said it was possible a shell containing ingredients for sarin nerve agent that detonated Monday was a relic that was overlooked when Saddam said he had destroyed such weapons in the mid-1990s. ... Kay, in a telephone interview with The Associated Press, said he doubted the shell or the nerve agent came from a hidden stockpile, although he didn't rule out that possibility. ... Former U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix agreed the shell was likely a stray weapon scavenged from a dump and did not signify that Iraq had large stockpiles."
