WMD facilities to be closed

After not finding any weapons of mass destruction or WMD facilities in Iraq, Dumsfeld is finally going to close down some WMD plants. Among the list of base closings recommended by the DoD today are the Deseret Chemical Depot in Utah and the Newport Chemical Depot in Indiana. According to its web site Deseret is home to more than 40% of America's chemical weapons, some of which are apparently being dismantled. Newport housed some 1,269 tons of the deadly nerve agent VX, which is in the process of being neutralized.

The good news, according to local reports from Utah and Indiana, is that DoD won't close these bases until the destruction of the chemical weapons is complete.
