Words Fail Me

"The defector who convinced the White House that Iraq had a secret biological weapons program has admitted for the first time that he lied about his story, then watched in shock as it was used to justify a war. Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed Curveball by German and US intelligence officials who dealt with him... said he was comfortable with what he did, despite the chaos of the past 8 years and the civilian death toll in Iraq, which stands at more than 100,000." (Iraqi defector admits lying about weapons, Chulov & Pidd, Guardian/SMH, 17/2/11)
