Nukes in Iraq?

Drudge and LGF are fronting this potential bombshell (i'm not sold on this personally, especially considering the source).

Iraq Interior Ministry Says Report on Nukes 'Stupid'

BAGHDAD, Iraq (Reuters) - Iraq's Interior Ministry dismissed as "stupid" a report in a local newspaper Wednesday that said three nuclear missiles had been found near Saddam Hussein's hometown of Tikrit.
A senior U.S. military official told reporters he had no information on the report in the Iraqi newspaper al-Sabah. He said officials were checking the report.

Asked by Reuters about the report, a spokesman at the Interior Ministry said: "It's stupid."

The report, picked up the United Press International news agency, sent the U.S. dollar higher against other major currencies on the foreign exchanges.

Funny that the market interprets this as good news. We are talking about nukes floating around, aren't we? If its true, how many more are there?
