    Those satellite photos were probably milk truck's or bus's. Any how, whether it was a deliberate attempt at deceiving the American or the international audience, it was flawed intelligence reporting that Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair now have some explaining to do. After innocent lives have been shed for their imperialistic war all we get is lie's and denials.

    You refered to, "The Fictional War On Terrorism". Unfortubately it maybe "fictional war" but innocent lives have been shed for their "Fiction" and has brought us that much closer to a 3rd world war.

    Hi William Penwell,

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, it was flawed intelligence! But not the kind spy satellites supply.

    For the Bush Administration to think that they can on the one hand before the war prove WMD, or the materials for them, were being moved using satellite photos of a few trucks but then after the war claim a big bunch of trucks carrying WMD must have been moved out of the country without their knowledge in an insult to the American people.

    The flawed "intelligence" is the Bush Administration itself, they are forgeting the great axiom of politics: You can fool all of the people some of the time and you can fool some of the people all of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time!

    They are digging a political hole for themselves and for America. The phrase "God Bless America" should be "God! Bless America and get George out of there!"

    It's been a while, so I may not be remembering this correctly, but did Colin Powell really have satellite images of the mobile labs? I don't remember seeing those. I saw old satellite images of buildings with trucks leaving and then the buildings were removed. Those were suspected fixed sites that had been taken down before inspections.

    The mobile biolabs intelligence were not satellite imagery (as far as I can remember) - they were from other sources. They had graphics showing what they could look like and how they may have been designed.

    Does anyone else remember this more clearly?

    Hi Rem,

    No, he claimed if I remember correctly that the trucks shown being moved from one place to another proved that Iraq was hiding the WMD or the materials for them from the U.N. inspectors. To my knowledge he was not claiming they were mobil labs.

    Well it looks like Bush's pet poodle, Tony Blair is now having to answer for the "flawed" intelligence information. It will only be a matter of time that W will have to account for his actions.

    Bush has backed Blair on WMD, so thats OK then, no need to worry.

    Bush defends Blair over Iraq
    By Justin Webb
    BBC Washington correspondent

    US President George W Bush has defended UK Prime Minister Tony Blair over allegations he exaggerated evidence of Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction.

    Russian-made surface-to-air missile abandoned in Baghdad, 15 June 2003 There is no conclusive evidence of weapons of mass destruction

    But a leading contender for the Democratic party's presidential nomination has accused the president of misleading the American people.

    President Bush is, it seems, frustrated, even annoyed by the British debate on weapons of mass destruction and perhaps concerned that a similar row could engulf him as well.

    So whereas in the past the president has offered warm but general praise of Mr Blair, on this occasion he got involved in more detail.

    altHe operated on very sound intelligence and those accusations are simply not true alt Bush on Blair

    Mr Bush said those who accuse the British Prime Minister of exaggerating the threat from Iraq before the war were wrong.

    Mr Blair operated on very sound intelligence, said the president, and those accusations were simply not true.

    As committees of both Houses of Congress continue with private inquiries into the subject, the leading Democratic presidential hopeful, Senator John Kerry, has made his strongest attack yet on the administration's position.

    Senator Kerry, who supported the war, said the president had misled "every one of us".

    The senator promised that Congress would, as he put it, "get to the bottom of things".

    Yes but, he may be able to put it off for a long time. The way he might do this is by maintaining the fear level of the general public, thus their support for his 'war on terror'. If he could orchestrate/provoke a few 'terrorist' incidents over there, or even better, here, that would be perfect.

    If the american economy worsens to the point of civil unrest, that would bless him w the opportunity to initiate more govt laws to restrtict society and the chance of himself being forced to give an accounting.

    Yeah Bush got his information from a reliable source, a 12 year old students essay paper.
