All these, and many more were "sure" that Saddam had WMD's.
New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, CNBC, Fox, etc....
The BBC was one of the only major news outlets that actually seemed to have any skepticism about the validity of these reports. Your insinuation that
people protesting against the war was somehow proof that the media didn't rally behind the WMD lie, is purely fallacious. Some media outlets
apologized, and changed their story when they found that their credibility was on the line, but in the beginning most were willing accomplices.
