Then-U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair wrote: “By the time of my visit to Basra [Iraq] at the end of May [29, 2003], [Secretary of Defense] Donald Rumsfeld had somewhat unhelpfully suggested that we may never find WMD, a prediction that turned out to be true but needed to be handled with some care. It was, after all, the casus belli.”
