"Report on Iraq: Why let the facts spoil a good story?" 
http://www.marxist.com/MiddleEast/iraq_iiss_report.html

"The report by the International Institute for Strategic Studies
(IISS) is amost striking proof of this old saying that the first
casualty of war is always the truth. It is being presented by the war
party in Washington andTony Blair as conclusive "proof" that Saddam
Hussein is just "months away" from launching a nuclear bomb." By Fred
Weston. (September 10, 2002)
