Bush Administration Still Lying about WMD

After lying in his 2004 State of the Union address by stating that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, President Bush’s administration is continuing to claim that Iraq has WMD. In a recent interview with NPR, vice president Dick Cheney said that Iraq had mobile biological weapons labs and that the United States found two such trailers, a claim that has been discredited by the CIA and head inspector David Kay. In the same interview, Cheney also claimed there were connections between Saddam Hussein and Al-Qaeda, a claim that has been repeatedly discredited. Meanwhile, the head of the inspections teams, David Kay, has resigned stating that Iraq never had stockpiles of WMD. Secretary of State Collin Powell has also suggested that Iraq may not have had any WMD.
