TAKE THAT, TONY....Is it true that we have found "massive evidence of a huge system of clandestine laboratories" in Iraq? Paul Bremer flatly rejects it:

Mr Bremer, interviewed on ITV1's Jonathan Dimbleby Programme...ridiculed the comment.

"I don't know where those words come from, but that is not what [ISG chief] David Kay has said," he told Dimbleby as the interviewer tried to interrupt to tell him the source.

"I have read his reports so I don't know who said that. It sounds like a bit of a red herring to me. It sounds like someone who doesn't agree with the policy sets up a red herring then knocks it down."

Well said. And exactly who was it that was out to undermine the coalition with red herrings like this, anyway?

Why, none other than Tony Blair himself. Oops.
