Iraq Didn’t have Weapons of Mass Destruction

Speaking of war and saber rattling, even more evidence has come to light that shows the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was pure malarkey:

Fresh evidence is revealed today about how MI6 and the CIA were told through secret channels by Saddam Hussein’s foreign minister and his head of intelligence that Iraq had no active weapons of mass destruction.

Tony Blair told parliament before the war that intelligence showed Iraq’s nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons programme was “active”, “growing” and “up and running”.

A special BBC Panorama programme tonight will reveal how British and US intelligence agencies were informed by top sources months before the invasion that Iraq had no active WMD programme, and that the information was not passed to subsequent inquiries.

It describes how Naji Sabri, Saddam’s foreign minister, told the CIA’s station chief in Paris at the time, Bill Murray, through an intermediary that Iraq had “virtually nothing” in terms of WMD.

Since the United States government lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction why is everybody so quick to believe its current claims that Iran is developing weapons of mass destruction? Why are people so quick to believe a perpetual liar? What makes anybody think that the United States government has decided to tell the truth this time?
