I always thought the presence of Frodo's belongings should have raised alarm bells in the Dark Tower--especially since Sauron's servants were supposed to be on the lookout for halflings. I suppose it could be explained by the possibility that Sauron simply assumed that Aragorn, marching towards the Morannon, already had the Ring in his possession. Then again, wasn't Sauron's motto: Assumption is the mother of all stuff-ups?
even though I don't think that's a huge flaw, if it can in fact even be called a flaw. Is it a matter of fact that Aragorn was defensless at that point?
