The Final Judgment: Bush and Blair's (and Howard's) Case for War is Demolished: "Now we finally know what we had long suspected. When US and British forces invaded Iraq, Saddam Hussein had no chemical weapons; he had no biological weapons; he had no nuclear weapons. In fact, he had no banned weapons at all. That is the considered judgment of the Iraq Survey Group, set up by President Bush to prove his case for removing the Iraqi dictator, and released in Washington last night."

The total absence of weapons may come as a surprise - some remnants of biological and chemical weapons was reasonably expected to be there. But no serious observer believed for a moment that WMDs were ever the real reason for the war. They were the pretext - that was very obvious from the beginning.
