Blair: Saddam ''WMD'' may never be found
The British Prime Minister on Tuesday admitted Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction may never be found. But Tony Blair insisted the ousted president did have them and that Iraq did pose a real threat before the war.
"I believe they were there, a lot of people did. That's why the international community came together to pass a resolution," he told the Commons Liaison Committee.
"We don't know what happened to them, whether they were moved or destroyed, but there is no doubt Saddam had the capability." (albawaba.com)
