    In a seemingly desperate attempt to find some evidence that Iraq has WMD and is a threat to world peace the USA seized on the "huge" drone found by Blix - and there was general outrage that this evidence was 'buried' on page 16 of Blix's report -

    BBC

    Indeed, there were even claims that this is proof of Blix's bias and even some who argued that this 'evidence' was hidden so that Blix could try and win the 1 million nobel peace prize.

    Well - it appears that the actual truth is somewhat different:

    source

    and

    Washington Post

    and

    source

    Once again, we discover that the claims of the US government regarding supposed Iraqi WMD are distortions and spin.

    Let's don't forget that these reports initially came from Iraq. That, in itself, is food for thought.

    I found these two items in the report especially interesting...

    1. Iraq showed journalists Wednesday what it SAID was the drone.

    2. While SMALL , Blix said, drones CAN be used to spray biological warfare agents such as anthrax. He said the drone had NOT been declared by Iraq to inspectors.

    Blessings,

    well no one from the UN or USA has claimed that this is not the case - in fact the UN have said:

    fox news

    Drones can be, yes - this drone? not really - it has to be operated by someone within line of sight of the drone so it would not be a very effective method of delivery - also it is unlikely that it has sufficent power to carry anything but cameras.

    Secondly, Blix is wrong - Iraq did declare the drone - if you read the article it states:
