Yet another tweak at the pretense for Iraq http://www.guardian.co.uk/Iraq/Story/0,2763,1184172,00.html "An Iraqi defector nicknamed Curveball who wrongly claimed that Saddam Hussein had mobile chemical weapons factories was last night at the centre of a bitter row between the CIA and Germany's intelligence agency. German officials said that they had warned American colleagues well before the Iraq war that Curveball's information was not credible - but the warning was ignored." "These 'killer caravans' allowed Saddam to produce anthrax 'on demand', it was claimed. US officials never had direct access to the defector(emphasis mine), and have subsequently claimed that the Germans misled them. Yesterday, however, German agents told Die Zeit newspaper that they had warned the Bush administration long before last year that there were 'problems' with Curveball's account. 'We gave a clear credibility assessment. On our side at least, there were no tricks before Colin Powell's presentation,' one source told the newspaper." So how do you feel about this? Can you trust an administration who will tell you they have information from "a solid source" that they never actually got to speak to? Do you still hold out hope that we'll find WMD, or even any biologicals? Is there any chance that, with the mounting evidence, anyone would ever admit to selling us, the American public, a lie to get us into the war?
