UPI can't even get a bunk story right 

Today UPI reports three nuclear warheads have been found in Iraq. The UPI story is based on a report in an Arabic language paper, al-Sabah. Al-Sabah is the Kuwaiti Royal Family's name - The Kuwaiti Royals were responsible for this false report I'm sure everybody fondly remembers, but I have no idea if this paper is related to Kuwaiti Royalty. The UPI article states al-Sabah is an "official daily" paper, this list of Iraqi papers lists it as an independant bi-weekly.

Here's a quick comparison of the al-Sabah story with the Rev. Sun Myung Moon owned UPI article:

I suppose part of the contradictions result from difficulty in translation, but come on!

PS: Story dismissed.
