“In [Secretary of State] Colin Powell’s presentation to the United Nations [on February 5, 2003] he said that ‘an eyewitness, an Iraqi chemical engineer [code-named Curveball] actually was present during biological agent production runs. He was also at the site when an accident occurred in 1998. Twelve technicians died from exposure to biological agents.’ But the Presidential Commission on Illegal Weapons noted in its 2005 report that when the alleged 1998 incident happened, Curveball ‘was not even in Iraq at the time, according to information supplied by family members and later confirmed by travel records.’ ”
