Powell squirms over Iraq WMD claim

Powell in February 2001:
He has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors.
Powell in September 2003:
Asked why he changed his assessment, Powell said: "I didn't change my assessment... I did not say he (Iraqi President Saddam Hussein) didn't have weapons of mass destruction."

"He was a threat then. The extent of his holdings were yet to be determined. It was early in the administration and the fact of the matter is it was long before 9/11 (the date of the 2001 attacks on the United States)".
Thank you, Mr. Powell, for saying that two airplanes crashing into New York skyscrapers resulted in Saddam acquiring WMD.

I recommend to Webster's that they place a picture of Powell next to the definition of "buffoon" in the next edition of their dictionary.
