WMD Pressure Builds Up for Blair: "Mr Blair insists weapons of mass destruction will be found although the official leading the US search resigned saying they did not exist... After resigning, US search official David Kay said he did not believe there had been large-scale production of chemical or biological weapons in Iraq since 1991. On Saturday US Secretary of State Colin Powell said Iraq may not have possessed any stocks of weapons of mass destruction before the Iraq War.

"Mr Cook, who resigned in protest at the prospect of war with Iraq, told BBC Radio 4's Today program it was 'rather undignified' of Mr Blair to continue to insist he was right when 'everybody could now see he was wrong... If there was no threat from Iraq we obviously had no right to carry out a preemptive strike to remove that threat. And we better drop that doctrine before somebody else in the world uses it in their own back yard.'"
