The plutonium connection. This is obviously the biggest story of the war if it proves true: US Marines have reportedly found radioactive material that may turn out to be weapons-grade plutonium at a facility south of Baghdad.

So why am I suspicious? Well, right now Fox News appears to be the only major news organization reporting this. And its source is an embedded reporter with Richard Mellon Scaife's Pittsburgh Tribune Review.

In other words, you might want to wait on this one. On the other hand, it certainly could be true. And if it is, it will obviously be a huge boost for President Bush.
