Bremer dismisses Blair claim on existence of WMD laboratories in Iraq
The US civil adminstrator for Iraq, Paul Bremer, Sunday denied the existence of laboratories in Iraq making weapons of mass destruction for which British Prime Minister Tony Blair claimed US-led teams have massive evidence.
Asked about the claim without being told first of the source, Bremer said: "I don't know where those words come from but that is not what (Iraq survey group chief) David Kay has said."
"I have read (Kay's) reports so I don't know who said that," Bremer said in an interview on the British ITV1 channel. "It sounds like a bit of a red herring to me," the the top American official commentde. "It sounds like someone who doesn't agree with the policy sets up a red herring then knocks it down."
