There are many questions about the reporting of the ‘war on terror’. Could the British media have warned the public before the Iraq invasion that there were no WMD? In the face of such relentless government claims that WMD existed it was hard to challenge. Perhaps the best response on WMD comes from Hans Blix, the UN Weapons Inspector who was later vilified by the US for not finding WMD. ‘In the autumn of 2002 I still thought there were Weapons of Mass Destruction’. As he pointed out it is hard to prove a negative. But he went on to say: ‘It is extraordinary that the intelligence services of the World’s most advanced nations made such a major error.’70
