Powell grovels in front of the world

Powell regrets UN speech on Iraq WMDs

Powell regrets UN speech on Iraq WMDs
Former US secretary of state Colin Powell says his United Nations speech making the case for the US-led war on Iraq was "a blot" on his record.

Mr Powell has also said that he had "never seen evidence to suggest" a connection between the September 11, 2001 terror attacks in the United States and the Saddam regime.

In the February 2003 presentation to the UN Security Council, Mr Powell forcefully made the case for war on the regime of Saddam Hussein, offering "proof" that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

The presentation included satellite photos of trucks that Mr Powell identified as mobile bioweapons laboratories.

After the invasion, US weapons inspectors reported finding no Iraqi nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.

And about the present sitaution in Iraq, he said:

"It may not have turned out to be such a mess if we had done some things differently."

Powell is a war criminal along with Bush and Blair and has to be tried and punished for the death and destruction he has been responsible for.
