The final judgement
"Now that the ISG has reported, it is clear beyond doubt that Iraq's deadly weapons capacity boiled down to a glint, if that, in Saddam Hussein's eye. In one of the more shameless examples of pre-emptive 'spinning', even from this Government so addicted to 'spin', the Foreign Secretary told us yesterday that, 'the report highlights the nature of the threat from Saddam in terms of his intentions and capabilities in even starker terms than we have seen before'. Try parsing that. Try translating it into plain English."
