On February 5, [2003,] Colin Powell gave a speech to the 15 [UN] council members. “He made many claims about the Iraqi threat. These included a strong connection between Iraq and al-Qaeda, the existence of mobile WMD units, and the Iraqi production of cultures of anthrax (a deadly disease). Most of these claims were later proven to be false.”
