At today's White House news briefing, WND asked presidential press secretary Ari Fleischer about the Marines' discovery of a tunnel complex under Iraq's Al-Tuwaitha atomic-energy facility and possible weapons-grade plutonium stored there.
WND: Can you provide us, Ari, with any further details on the Pittsburgh-Tribune Review, WorldNetDaily and Fox News story about the extensive tunnel infrastructure under the Al-Tuwaitha nuclear plant and reports of the possible discovery of weapons-grade plutonium?
FLEISCHER: That's a DOD matter, operationally, as they go through Iraq and take a look at the facts that they find and as they evaluate information they receive through their technical teams.
WND reports today that a U.S. investigation is underway to determine whether U.S. Marines guarding the nuclear facility have discovered previously undocumented weapons-grade nuclear material, or low-grade uranium about which United Nations inspectors previously knew.

Granted, that's bad enough, but not evidence of plutonium.
