NYT: An early draft of an interim report by the American leading the hunt for banned weapons in Iraq says his team has not found any of the unconventional weapons cited by the Bush administration as a principal reason for going to war, federal officials with knowledge of the findings said today. <p>**Wasn't it *the* principal reason for going to war? It makes a difference.**

Don't forget, there also was the direct link between Saddam Hussein and the 9/11 attackers.

True, true. The "official" justification, near as I can tell, was the weapons, the violation of the U.N. resolution. But the 9/11 connection obviously was (or used to be) talked up. Perhaps I was too hasty in my criticism.
