Former UN Weapons Inspector to Testify against Washington

An article posted on the website Rebelion, cites Blix as saying that he along with Mohamed ElBaradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were subjected to implicit threats by Dick Cheney in the US effort to launch the invasion of Iraq.

In an interview with Al Jazeera TV, the former UN weapons inspector said that Cheney also threatened him and ElBaradei with defamation if they rejected to provide the "required" information on the alleged possession by Iraq of weapons of mass destruction.

"The Bush administration lied to the US people and the world by unleashing a media campaign on the weapons of mass destruction to justify the invasion of Iraq," said Blix, who noted that he is now ready to testify before an international court on the false accusations raised by Washington.

The Judicial Committee of the US House of Representatives, the source adds, accused Cheney of "manipulating the intelligence to lie to Congress and the US people about a fabricated Iraqi threat of weapons of mass destruction and an alleged relationship between Iraq and Al Qaeda."

Following 9/11, Vice-president Cheney gave the NBC a false statement declaring Iraq as the "geographic source" of the attacks; however, President George Bush admitted that he had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved in the 9/11 attacks.
