David Kay speaks. Before the war. Hat tip to Instapundit.
This article written by David Kay, infamous weapons inspector, is about Iraq's material breach of UN resolution 1441. This should be an eye opener, but as usual will probably not open anyone's eyes who don't already have them open. This is something I've been thinking about for a while, and I often wonder why everyone who declares that Bush lied (or whatever) and that there are no WMD in Iraq usually point to David Kay and the fact that he said there was nothing there.
That's not really what he said, and this article summarizes his feelings before the war that inspections trying to find a smoking gun were doomed to failure, as they had for the last 12 years. The evidence was there. Iraq WAS in serious breach of the UN resolution.
Interestingly, it also points out that the Bush administration made a blunder here, although you can decide for yourself if that would have changed whether or not we would have gone to war anyway, or just postponed it.
Read the whole thing.
