What's Missing from Iraq's Weapons Facilities

A short piece from AP on the Jerusalem Post web site lists what's missing from the 90+ sites that were looted after (or before?) the US invasion:
Samoud 2 short-range missiles: up to 36

Fatah short-range missiles: up to 34

SA-2 missile engines: about 600

Mustard-gas artillery shells (155mm): 550

Sarin-filled artillery rockets: 2,500, possibly neutralized

HMX, other high-grade explosives: 340 metric tons (377 short tons)

Sensitive chemical equipment: at least 800 pieces

Bioweapons seed stocks: unknown amount
Please read the Christopher Hitchens article on so-called looting that I posted earlier this week.
