War Increases Threat From WMD

There’s yet more evidence that Bush’s invasion of Iraq has placed us at increased risk from WMD, contrary to his pre-war claims. The Washington Post reports on how “U.S. troops raiding a warehouse in the northern city of Mosul uncovered a suspected chemical weapons factory containing 1,500 gallons of chemicals believed destined for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi forces and civilians.”

The Washington Post reports a military spokesman of reporting that “the suspected lab was new, dating from some time after the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.” The Post places this in perspective, explaining that “The Bush administration cited evidence that Saddam Hussein’s government was manufacturing weapons of mass destruction as the main justification for the invasion. No such weapons or factories were found.”
