“Interviewed at a Commonwealth Conference in Australia on 3 March 2002, [U.K. Prime Minister Tony] Blair insisted that Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction and was capable of using them. Blair indicated that there was a case for dealing with Iraq as a matter of urgency. Asked if this meant war was imminent Blair replied, ‘Let us wait and see exactly what happens, but it’s clear we need to deal with the issue.’ ”
