“The CIA’s new white paper, ‘Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Programs,’ was publicly released on October 4 [2002], just as senators and representatives were beginning the floor debate on the resolution that would authorize [President] Bush to launch a war against Iraq whenever he saw fit. …The white paper falsely stated that ‘All intelligence experts agree that Iraq is seeking nuclear weapons,’ ignoring the State Department’s pointed dissent.”
