September Surprise?

The question is after one year of constant chipping, how many of the supposed "lies" can be refuted, and (in terms of the election) if it will even matter...

WASHINGTON (AP) - An upcoming report will contain "a good deal of new information" backing up the Bush administration's contention that Saddam Hussein pursued weapons of mass destruction, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John Warner, R-Va., said Tuesday.

The administration cited Saddam's hunger for such weapons as a main reason to invade Iraq last year.

"I'm not suggesting dramatic discoveries," Warner told reporters, but "bits and pieces that Saddam Hussein was clearly defying" international restrictions, "and he and his government had a continuing interest in maintaining the potential to shift to production of various types of weapons of mass destruction in a short period of time."

The report is by the civilian head of the Iraq Survey Group, Charles Duelfer, who reports to the CIA (news - web sites) director. Initially the report was expected to be done this summer, but instead it will come out in September, Warner said.

Maybe The New York Times will issue an apology for their apology...
