Does David Kay have proof of WMDs?

According to Robert Novak, David Kay has reported to his superiors that he has found "substantial evidence" of biological weapons & "considerable missile development". He hasn't had much luck locating chemical weapons and hasn't really begun trying to find nuclear arms.

The really interesting part is this ...
Senior officials in the Bush administration believe Kay's weapons discoveries should have been revealed as they were made. However, a decision, approved by President Bush, was made to wait until more was discovered and then announce it -- probably in September.
Here's a take from the blogverse ... Glenn Reynolds:
If true, this would tend to support the "rope-a-dope" theory that Bush is letting his critics make a big deal out of WMD, so that he can completely undercut them by producing the weapons at a politically opportune moment. I've been skeptical of that theory, but, well, this is some degree of support for it.
