No WMDs, no "biological laboratories."

Is everything the Bush administration told us about the war in Iraq false? Seems like it.

New falsehood: Remember when Bush declared, fifty days after Baghdad fell, that US forced had discovered mobile "biological laboratories"? "We have found the weapons of mass destruction," he said.

A secret fact-finding mission to Iraq -- not made public until now -- had already concluded that the trailers had nothing to do with biological weapons. Leaders of the Pentagon-sponsored mission transmitted their unanimous findings to Washington in a field report on May 27, 2003, two days before the president's statement.
