Iraq: The Final Verdict

The results are in:

The comprehensive 15-month search for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq has concluded that the only chemical or biological agents that Saddam Hussein’s regime was working on before last year’s invasion were small quantities of poisons, most likely for use in assassinations.

A draft of the Iraq Survey Group’s final report circulating in Washington found no sign of the alleged illegal stockpiles that the US and Britain presented as the justification for going to war, nor did it find any evidence of efforts to reconstitute Iraq’s nuclear weapons programme.

So there we have it. Iraq had no WMD. Those reports on Fox News saying they’d found sarin and mustard gas bombs were just typical Fox News propaganda, it seems. No chemical weapons in mass quantities were actually found, nor were there any factories capable of making them.
