Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)

Blix labels Bush, Blair "witch hunters" over alleged Iraqi WMD

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Berlin, Feb 17, IRNA -- Former United Nations chief weapons inspector 
Hans Blix lashed out at United States President George W. Bush and 
British Prime Minister Tony Blair for alleging banned Iraqi weapons 
used to justify the Iraq war, branding the Anglo-American leaders as 
"witch hunters". 
"We have said before the war that there had been no evidence for 
weapons of mass destruction in Iraq but they have ignored it," Blix 
told Tuesday`s issue of the Mannheimer Morgen newspaper. 
"If you believe in witches, then every coffee cup is proof for 
something. And they were witch hunters and are shouldering now the 
responsibility," he added. 
Blix whose inspectors departed Iraq on the eve of the war after 
only a few months of inspections, has repeatedly said that he 
believed firmly Iraq had destroyed its weapons of mass destruction 
back in 1993.
