In a speech to Parliament on February 25, 2003, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said: ” ‘We knew he [Saddam Hussein] had used these weapons [of mass destruction] against his own people, and against a foreign country, Iran, but we had not known that in addition to chemical weapons, he had biological weapons which he had denied completely and was trying to construct a nuclear weapons programme.’ ”
