But before you jump to conclusions, these are not WMD’s.
U.S. troops uncover one of their biggest weapons caches in Saddam’s hometown

Let no man say that I have never said a good word about Bill Gates. This month, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has pledged $55 million to “accelerate dengue vaccine research,” $51 million to “support small dynamic high schools to boost student achievement” in New York City, and $168 million to fight malaria. That’s a quarter of a billion dollars for health and education causes. Good job, Bill.
