UN cleaned out by...a cleaning agent?

Remember the big hubub over the chemical weapons found at the UN? Well, it probably wasn't that big of a deal.

Fooled again.

Chemicals discovered in the United Nations' Manhattan offices - feared to be a toxic agent produced by Saddam Hussein's regime a decade ago - may be nothing worse than a cleaning solvent, sources said yesterday.

Preliminary tests show the substance, which was found Aug. 24, was not the potentially fatal phosgene, sources said.

I say "probably" because we'll likely find out tomorrow that instead of cleaning solvent it was the essence of the anti-Christ. There are two things you can never trust in this world, besides the government: The UN and anonymous sources.
