“Curveball” Speaks

A reporter for the Los Angeles Times landed a rare interview with the Iraqi known as “Curveball,” the now-discredited source on whom the Bush Administration rested much of its case for Iraq having weapons of mass destruction.

Living in Germany and speaking out for the first time, “Curveball” says everyone has been lying about him:

“I never said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, never in my whole life,” he said. “I challenge anyone in the world to get a piece of paper from me, anything with my signature, that proves I said there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.”

How did the Bush administration get it so wrong?

“I’m not the source of these problems,” he said.
