“NOT BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF POSSIBILITY”….Remember that little misunderstanding about Iraq buying uranium from Niger? Sure you do. Well, the CIA may have backed down from that claim, but Tony Blair is sticking to his guns:
I stand by entirely the claim that was made last September….We know in the 1980s that Iraq purchased from Niger over 270 tons of uranium, and therefore it is not beyond the bounds of possibility ?? let’s at least put it like this ?? that they went back to Niger again. That is why I stand by entirely the statement that was made in the September dossier.
That’s reassuring, isn’t it? I guess “not beyond the bounds of possibility” is now the standard for arguments in favor of going to war.
Tony Blair is in a lot of trouble.
