Tonight on Frontline " Chasing Saddam's Weapons "
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/wmd /

As the U.S. government was making its case for war with
Iraq back in December 2002, former U.N. weapons
inspector Dr. David Kay came down squarely on the side
of the Bush administration.

"Essentially, everyone who runs an active intelligence
service knows this regime has been seeking weapons of
mass destruction," Kay said at the time.

What a difference a year makes.

After spending seven months scouring Iraq for some
trace of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons, Kay --
who now leads the Iraq Survey Group (ISG) searching for
Saddam's weapons -- has yet to find the critical evidence
to back up his earlier conviction.

1. I had to stop watching after 25 minutes
It made me angry and sad all at the same time. It laid it all out with Bush erroneously pointing to the trailers of mass destruction and the questionable action of selecting David Kay as the head of the search team.

This is what the news should have been reporting at the time it was happening. Two years later a report such as this has little effect.
