Blair's cabinet takes on the BBC, claiming they do have evidence to refute BBC's claims that they didn't have evidence of WMD's, even though they don't have evidence of WMD's. (,12956,986017,00.html?=rss)

Downing Street is in bullish mood and last night sent evidence to the foreign affairs select committee which it believes will prove that No 10 did not propose improper drafting changes to the joint intelligence committee (JIC) report published in September. It has also sent evidence to justify its claim that the second so-called dodgy dossier did include new intelligence evidence.
Mr Straw plans to reveal intelligence material to prove that the claim that Iraq could fire chemical weapons was not inserted into the September dossier against the wishes of the intelligence services. He will also justify the claim that Iraq was seeking uranium from Niger.

Got that? "We can prove that we got false data honestly. Or something."

Oh, what a tangled web we weave...
