Is that a weapon of mass destruction in your pocket? Or have I just been lying all this time?

Well, the lack of specifics were apparently due to the lack of weapons.
Iraqi scientists never revived their long-dead nuclear bomb program, and in fact lied to Saddam Hussein about how much progress they were making before U.S.-led attacks shut the operation down for good in 1991, Iraqi physicists say.
And, for reference, we've still to this date not found a single Iraqi scientist who in their "liberation" has now confessed to a massive WMD program in Iraq. If the CIA had any information, it would have been information that there was no reason to invade. No wonder no one wanted the specifics.

This is like the opposite of NewsFilter. Something like CouldaToldYaThatFilter.
