Secretary of State Colin Powell, amid the exit of David Kay, answered questions about the WMD's in Iraq. He put the possibility "out there" that Pre-war Iraq did not have any WMD's. I just want one question aswered, They Do or They Don't. If he is illuding to to the fact that they might not have had any WMD's, then the decision to go to war was under some serious false pre-tenses.

Remember all the evidence? Remember all the hype? The proof? Well, Maybe not.

Powell was asked about comments last week by David Kay, the outgoing leader of a U.S. weapons search team in Iraq, that he did not believe Iraq had large quantities of chemical or biological weapons.

"The answer to that question is, we don't know yet," Powell told reporters as he traveled to this former Soviet republic to attend the inauguration Sunday of President-elect Mikhail Saakashvili.

"Powell said:

"The open question is, how many stocks they had, if any, and if they had any, where did they go, and if they didn't have any, then why wasn't that known beforehand?"

"Powell vigorously defended the U.S. intelligence community, whose estimates of Iraq's weapons programs reflected the consensus of other foreign governments and President Bush's predecessor."

"Powell on Saturday blamed Saddam for much of the uncertainty.

"What we demanded of Iraq was that they account for all of this and they prove the negative of our hypothesis. All they did was make statements without proving it," he said."

In such, the White House is giving a more aggressive response.
