Iraqi WMD

The report from the Intelligence and Security Committee of the UK House of
Commons on Iraqi WMD can be downloaded from the Federation of American Scientists. I'll write up my thoughts on it, when I've actually read it.

My very quick review of it suggests the following:

* British Intelligence suggests that Iraq did have WMD programmes prior to the second gulf war

* The dossier released by the British government should have be more clear about the uncertainty associated with Intelligence data

* The war was likely to increase the probability of the capture of a WMD by terrorist groups
