Bush Administration's "Curveball" Source Admits Lying About WMD

In case you forgot for a minute about all the people who died thanks to the policies of worst President ever, George W. Bush:

Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed "Curveball" by German and American intelligence officials, now admits he made up tales of mobile biological weapons trucks and clandestine weapons factories in Iraq, information that was used by the Bush White House to press the case for war. He also says he'd do it again.

How did the Bush machine use Curveball?

“We have teams of people that are out looking. They’ve investigated a number of sites. And within the last week or two, they have in fact captured and have in custody two of the mobile trailers that Secretary Powell talked about at the United Nations as being biological weapons laboratories.”

“Is it an embarrassment to people on the other side that we've discovered these biological production vans, which the defector told us about?”
