Remember those Iraqi ‘mobile germ labs’?
You remember them, the ones Bush and Blair proudly proclaimed proved that Iraq had WMD, right? Well, yet again, it appears King George and his British poodle Tony have been fibbing to us.
“The Observer has established that it is increasingly likely that the units were designed to be used for hydrogen production to fill artillery balloons, part of a system originally sold to Saddam by Britain in 1987.
Tony Blair faces a fresh crisis over Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction, as evidence emerges that two vehicles that he has repeatedly claimed to be Iraqi mobile biological warfare production units are nothing of the sort.
The intelligence agency MI6, British defence officers and technical experts from the Porton Down microbiological research establishment have been ordered to conduct an urgent review of the mobile facilities, following US analysis which casts serious doubt on whether they really are germ labs.
The British review comes amid widespread doubts expressed by scientists on both sides of the Atlantic that the trucks could have been used to make biological weapons.
It is not possible they didn’t know this. It is becoming clear they have been continually lying about this and are now getting trapped in their own lies.
This is a perfect issue to organize on. It could spell the end of Bush.
