I can't post links or embed a youtube video but search "The Spies Who Fooled The World" on youtube and you can watch a show from the BBC last night. The build up to the war was completely made up BS.
This is ridiculous. Read the Senate report on pre-war intelligence or the Butler Report from Great Britain and it will be clear that that's not the case. There were internal disputes about certain specific points of intelligence, but it's simply not true that our intelligence services knew there were no WMD.
