CHEMICAL SITE FOUND?

MSNBC has a Breaking News report that another purported chemical site has been found in Iraq. No link beyond the headline just yet.

Update (10:25): The report has been confirmed:

U.S. Army commanders say they have discovered more than a dozen barrels of chemicals in an agricultural facility 30 miles northeast of here that have tested positive as blister and nerve agents. If that initial analysis is backed up by further testing, it would be the first confirmed seizure by U.S. forces of Iraqi chemical weapons.

No comment from Hans Blix as of yet.
