Water on Mars 2009?

Water on Mars hasn't been proven yet. If one assumes that the "slumps" (lips of craters where a significant amount of subsurface ice is present) that have been found on Mars formed with the aid of liquid water, where did the water go?
Do you think that now in 2009 NASA is going to finally confirm water on mars just as they did with water on the moon?

There could be quite a bit of water under the martian surface.
If you combine oxygen and hydrogen and add a spark, KABOOM! You end up with a nice exothermic reaction (explosion) and water.

Scientists are still looking for solid proof of LIQUID water on/near the surface of Mars.

We also have evidence that shows Mars was once a very wet place in the distant past. We're talking a billion plus years ago, but it did once have oceans and rivers of liquid water. This water could still be there, trapped beneath the surface.
