18. Ah, but it WAS
The reports that they presented to Congress and the UN were entitled "Denial and Deception". They WERE about moving things and sanitizing trucks and devious behavior. They WERE NOT about the actual existence of any known weapon.

So the question is, why did he say he knew where the weapons were? "They're in the area of Baghdad and Tikrit". Why did Ari say the President's position was that Iraq has chemical and biological weapons?

They lied. And Rumsfeld just said so. I hope hope hope he isn't let off the hook. That will be up to US!!!
