Who does Blair think he is, Thomas Friedman?


Tony Blair’s claim that Iraq could launch WMDs on 45 minutes’ notice evidently came from... a taxi driver. Who said he’d heard it from two army officers talking in the back of his cab. MI6 told Blair it was “verifiably inaccurate” (so why were they passing it on to Downing Street?) but he used it anyway.
