There are folks at the CIA who claim they are no such thing at all but
won't let themselves be identified in the press for obvious
reasons. However, might I suggest that rather than defending the
administration's lies here, you find another forum for doing it?

No, the inspectors destroyed a lot of it, too. I predicted to several
friends in advance of the war that no or almost no banned weapons
would be found. Astonishingly, it turns out I was correct. But this is
not the place for this discussion. This is a place to discuss getting
beer. I can name numerous other lists where you can discuss why you
believe things the government tells you.
