WMD WAS JUST AN EXCUSE FOR THE REST OF YOU:

Blair ‘would have gone to war without Iraqi WMD’ (Ruth Gledhill and David Brown, 12/12/09, Times of London)

Tony Blair would still have led the country to war in Iraq even if he had known that it had no weapons of mass destruction.

The former Prime Minister has confessed that he would have had to use different arguments to justify toppling Saddam Hussein. But he says in an interview to be broadcast tomorrow morning that he would still have taken steps to remove the Iraqi dictator from power.


W was just humoring Mr. Blair and General Powell when he let them use WMD to try and sway their constituents. The PM knew that. It seems like the Secretary of State may actually have fooled himself.
