Inquiry: U.K. Iraq Intelligence 'Flawed'

1 hour, 10 minutes ago

By ED JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

LONDON - Iraq (news - web sites) had no useable chemical or biological weapons before the war, and British intelligence relied in part on "seriously flawed" or "unreliable" sources, an official inquiry reported Wednesday.

Prime Minister Tony Blair (news - web sites) accepted the report's findings and took "personal responsibility," although his government was absolved of "deliberate distortion or culpable negligence."


In a statement to the House of Commons, Blair conceded it was "increasingly clear" Saddam Hussein (news - web sites) had no stockpiles of illicit weapons on the eve of the war. But he insisted the U.S. led military campaign was not a mistake.


"I have to accept, as the months have passed, it seems increasingly clear that at the time of invasion Saddam did not have stockpiles of chemical or biological weapons ready to deploy," Blair said.


But, he insisted, "I cannot honestly say I believe getting rid of Saddam was a mistake at all. Iraq, the region, the wider world is a better and safer place without Saddam."


Lord Butler's report, echoing the damning findings of last week's U.S. Senate report, said that Iraq "did not have significant, if any, stocks of chemical or biological weapons in a state fit for deployment or developed plans for using them."


The report said the government's claim in a September 2002 dossier that Saddam could use chemical and biological weapons on 45 minutes notice was potentially misleading because it did not explain that it referred to battlefield weapons.


However, the report backed the government's claim that it had intelligence that Iraq had sought uranium in Africa, and that the claim was not based on forged documents.


"No one lied, no one made up the intelligence, no one inserted things into dossier against the advice of intelligence services,"

"Everyone genuinely tried to do their best in good faith for the country in circumstances of acute difficulty. That issue of good faith should now be at an end,"
