Bush Mislead by Lack of Intelligence

George Bush and Tony Blair , perhaps fired by a religious conviction they were battling evil, were seduced by unproven intelligence reports of Iraq's illegal weapons, former chief U.N. arms inspector Hans Blix says.
Blix, who said he came under intense U.S. pressure to accept such intelligence as fact and was vilified for refusing...
"I added that it would prove paradoxical and absurd if 250,000 troops were to invade Iraq and find very little," he wrote about their meeting on February 20, 2003.
Nearly a year after the invasion and Saddam's overthrow U.S.-led forces have not found any illegal weapons.

What a gentleman. Instead of "paradoxical and absurd" he could have used clearly criminal and arrogantly moronic.
