Hans Blix has indicated concern about the many fraudulent reports which flowed in to his inspectors just prior to the American invasion of Iraq:

Blix said he would not dream of accusing U.S. and British intelligence agents of fabricating reports on illegal arms. But he questioned their ability to spot what he called "fakes" such as a report Iraq had imported tonnes of raw uranium.

"Is it not disturbing that the intelligence agencies that should have all the technical means at their disposal did not discover that this was falsified?" he told the BBC.

"I think that's very very disturbing. Who falsifies this?" he said in the excerpts of the interview, aired ahead of the planned full broadcast on Saturday.

That is one area into which our intrepid press has not ventured: who falsified the reports on Iraq which were sent to the UN by the US and its allies, such as Italy?

I suddenly have the "Church Lady" routine playing in my head. "Who could it be? Oh, I don't know...SATAN?"

Seriously though. Blix is quite the diplomat, is he not? "I'm not saying it's the US. But golly, how could they not have known? And who could it POSSIBLY be falsifying this stuff?" Heh.
