But what about the babies??
Oops. False alarm.
American investigators in Iraq have found safely locked in vaults almost 40,000 manuscripts and 700 artefacts previously believed to have been looted from the National Museum in Baghdad.
The items include a clay pot from 5000 BC, an inscribed cornerstone from King Nebuchadnezzar’s 7th-century BC Babylon palace and hundreds of pieces of ancient jewelery, pottery and sarcophaguses.
US officials said that many items originally thought to have been looted were placed in hidden vaults, discovered inside the museum this week, for protection before the war began. Other items were returned once agents talked of amnesty and potential rewards.
What's that I hear? Is that an apology? A retraction?
No, just crickets chirping.
