Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, codenamed "Curveball" by German and American intelligence officials, now admits he made up tales of mobile biological weapons trucks and clandestine weapons factories in Iraq, information that was used by the Bush White House to press the case for war. He also says he'd do it again.
"Maybe I was right, maybe I was not right," Janabi told The Guardian. "They gave me this chance. I had the chance to fabricate something to topple the regime.
Hundreds of thousands of people dead, but this liar would do it all again. In addition, the Bush administration had ample evidence that the information was unreliable, but went with it anyway, because they wanted a war. Lovely, just lovely.
