In Iraq, “Through the end of September [2003], [CIA chief weapons Inspector David] Kay’s group made lots of ambiguous discoveries–‘dual-use’ production facilities or chemicals that could be used for either weapons or non-WMD products. Chlorine could be used to make chemical weapons, or it could be used to purify water for swimming pools. Kay never had a Eureka! moment, but he gradually concluded that the reason they weren’t finding WMD stockpiles was because they simply didn’t exist.” [The 30th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
