I Had That Osama Bin Laden In The Back Once

While I'm blogging everything today, I couldn't let this go :

Spy Chief Faces Questions On Iraq Weapons Intelligence

Key extract :

"In the end it turned out that the information [about Iraq being capable of launching WMDs within 45 minutes] was not credible, it had originated from an emigre taxi driver on the Iraqi-Jordanian border, who had remembered an overheard conversation in the back of his cab a full two years earlier."

Tune in next year as we invade Iran based on a conversation with a hairdresser which turns out to be about a film they saw on TV.

Also while I'm here : stupid people are funny -
