but it is a fct that the justification for the second Iraq war was a fake.
The scientist actually talks about this in the book, and explains how this shows what little anyone actually knew about their nuclear program [besides the Israelis]. The evidence we paraded in front of the UN was stuff we said had to do with wmd proliferation, but in reality had nothing at all to do with the real wmd programs Saddam was running at the time. Nor was our "evidence" stuff Saddam had planted to try to trick us. We were interpreting things as things that we shouldn't have.
They never found chemical weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
No, and we still wouldn't have known about their real nuclear program had the author of this book never come forward. Thankfully he wasn't a bath-party fanatic or we still wouldn't know.
