BBC: CIA and MI6 knew Iraq's WMD 'Evidence' was based on Lies and Fabrications
Tuesday, 19 March 2013

A BBC Panorama investigation is to reveal key aspects of the secret intelligence used by Downing Street and the White House to justify the invasion of Iraq.

BBC's Peter Taylor reports on how two crucial pieces of intelligence from perhaps the best sources Western intelligence ever had, were used selectively or simply ignored.

Speaking to the Today program, he said: "We've conducted a forensic investigation of the intelligence, and we've found that key elements were based on fabrication, wishful thinking and outright lies.

"But we've also revealed that there was intelligence that was accurate - that Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction." 

Program will air tonight on BBC.
