|shortdescription ||In Iraq there were not weapons of mass destruction …I know it now|
Almost four years after the war in Iraq began , the ex prime minister, José María Aznar, has recognized, for the first time, that Sadam Hussein’s regime did not have weapons of mass destruction: “All the world thought that there were such weapons, but there were not. All the world knows this fact, and I do too… now”, answered to one student in Pozuelo, in an act with PP loyals, which clap for that decision. In 2003, when Aznar sent Spanish troops to Iraq, he ensured the opposite “Everybody knows that Sadam has weapons of mass destruction. I am saying the truth: a regime with these weapons is a risk for the peace”. (El País) (La Vanguardia)
The PSOE wants Aznar “to ask for sorry” because Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. (El Mundo)
