Iraq’s mobile bio-war labs solved?

With the search for the ever elusive mobile bio-war facilities that has been plaguing the reasons for the United States for going into war in the first place, it’s interesting that DefenseTech writes the summary on how the rumor got started by Scott Ritter, a former marine supporting a UN inspection team, that turned into an ugly game of “he said, she said”. More notably:

Leitenberg reveals that Scott Ritter was pulled into a British intelligence op called “Operation Mass Appeal” run by MI6 in 1997. The purpose of “Operation Mass Appeal” was to leak weak and not “actionable” data about Iraq’s WMD program to the media, who would fall upon it like hungry wolves and keep alive the public impression that Saddam had an active WMD program, despite the lack of official government endorsement.

A dinformation leak operations? Gee. The cards keep stacking up against the bad intelligence.
