Bush relied on "flawed information"
That's diplomacy for "Bush was a flawed, war-mongering fool"
Hanz Blix told Britain's inquiry
into the 2003 invasion Tuesday that the U.S. and U.K. relied on
flawed intelligence and showed dubious judgment in the buildup to war.
Hans Blix said Bush was "high on military" action in the aftermath of
9-11, and refused to
heed concerns over the paltry threat posed by Saddam Hussein's regime.
At a London hearing, Blix said those who were "100 percent certain
there were WMDs" in Iraq

Saddam might have no WMDs.
He said he told Rice and Blair his "belief, faith in intelligence had

launch a senseless war."
