"On May 29, 2003, 50 days after the fall of Baghdad, President Bush proclaimed a fresh victory for his administration in Iraq: Two small trailers captured by U.S. and Kurdish troops had turned out to be long-sought mobile 'biological laboratories.' He declared, 'We have found the weapons of mass destruction.'"
Turns out, the trailers were NOT for making WMDs. Turns out, a Pentagon fact-finding team transmitted that finding in a unanimous report to Washington two days before Mr Bush made his announcement.
Turns out -- the trailers were for making hydrogen -- for weather balloons.
Now, we all know that people for years have mistaken weather balloons for UFOs.
President Bush becomes the first person to mistake them for WMDs. (WashPost)
