On this morning's TAKEAWAY Richard Perle went out of his way to justify the intelligence suggesting that Iraq had WMDs in 2003. He blames Saddam for not cooperating. Yet after the disclosure iof the program in summer 1991, Saddam ordered a shut down of the program as described to the UN by the Scentist Dr Jafar Dhia Jafar. What was lacking was a failure in the US and Great Britain to analyze their data with any scientific and technical competence. Richard Perle should have admitted this. the failure of Perle and some other Washington insiders to do so bodes ill for the future, and scares me.
