US abandoning hunt for WMDs
"You can only search so many places for WMD," said a defense official, who added that the [Iraq Survey Group] continues to review documents and interview people knowledgeable about deposed President Saddam Hussein's arms programs for possible leads.
Maybe you remember that report? It stated that "Iraq had no stockpiles of biological and chemical weapons and its nuclear program had decayed before last year's U.S.-led invasion." Hmmm. That assertion is, I dunno, somehow completely contrary to the "evidence" put forth by the Bush administration as justification for invasion, wouldn't you say? Full story on Reuters, c/o Fark.
Charles Duelfer, the CIA special adviser who led the ISG's weapons search, has returned home and is expected next month to issue a final addendum to his September report concluding that prewar Iraq had no WMD stockpiles, officials said.
