ABSTRACT
The article reports on the search for weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq. American soldiers were rooting through government offices and former President Saddam Hussein's palaces for WMD. The documents found in Hussein's cratered residences in Baghdad may provide new clues to specific weapons there. The hunt was being carried out by the forces near the town of Qaim also where, the U.S. officials believe, Hussein may have stockpiled prohibited long-range missiles.
