WHAT'S MORE SURPRISING: REPORTS OF NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN IRAQ, OR BREAKING NEWS FROM SPITBULL? 

Iraqi security has discovered three missiles carrying nuclear heads concealed in a concrete trench near Tikrit, according to "official sources" quoted by an Iraqi newspaper. The UPI has picked up the report, and the Washington Times has published the UPI story online.

Meanwhile, Reuters says that a spokesman for Iraq's Interior Ministry has dismissed the report as "stupid," though U.S. military officials are checking it out.

You may choose your own closing:

(a). We report, you decide.

(b). Developing....

(c). Interesting....

(d). Heh.

(e). Yeah, but what about Sandy Berger's pants?

UPDATE: The UPI has backed away from the story. Named source, on the record:
"Nothing's been found. The report is not factual," said Master Sgt. Robert Cowens, a spokesman for the 1st Infantry Division, based in Tikrit.
To all who chose (e), congratulations!
