In the months leading up to the launch of the Iraq war in March 2003, the Bush administration built a case for the invasion based on what it called evidence that Saddam Hussein was in possession of weapons of mass destruction.

On May 29, 2003,President Bush reacted to the capture of what were described as two mobile "biological laboratories" as proof that "we have found the weapons of mass destruction."

The Washington Post reported Tuesday that even as the administration was touting the capture of those alleged labs, U.S. intelligence officials had already been informed that the information was erroneous.
