On January 28, 2004, former Iraq Survey Group leader David Kay “told the Senate Armed Services Committee that ‘it turns out we were all wrong’ about Iraq’s weapons. His team had combed the country and found no signs of stockpiles, ‘large or small.’ Kay said he believed the uncovered mobile laboratories, which the CIA still insisted were for biological weapons production, had more likely been designed to produce hydrogen for balloons. In his judgment, the intercepted aluminum tubes had been configured for conventional use in missiles rather than to produce weapons-grade uranium.”
