a weapon indeed,

but I guess to determine whether its a weapon of mass destruction does depend on the effects it has

I'm neither a WMD nor a Anthrax or Nervegas expert but when a "product" is to old (I think experts don's speak about 3 / 5 years for fun) it dosn't work as it should.
So maybe if you use old Anthrax it makes the other sick and kills some people but i think it can't be used as WMD anymore otherwise the "date of expiry" dosn't make sense to me.

It depends on how such things are maintained. You really only start to have an erosion effect once the materials have been put into a Artillery shell or munition for use on the battle field. That usually does not happen until fighting starts or is about to begin. Prior to that time, such materials can be maintained given the right storage and equipment.

In addition, no one knows precisely when Saddam produced or did not produce Anthrax and other WMD.
