Bush claims we did find WMDs — those two trailers:

President Bush, citing two trailers that U.S. intelligence agencies have said were probably used as mobile biological weapons labs, said U.S. forces in Iraq have found the weapons of mass destruction” that were the United States’ primary justification for going to war.

But the CIA seems to actually be far less certain than Bush claims. Daily Kos has good coverage on this:

Bush is walking around making absolutist claims about the nature of those vehicles. But once again, political expediency is trumping the actual intelligence. The CIA doesn’t claim anything more than that the trucks were probably” bioweapon production facilities. For Bush to claim they are absolute evidence of WMD violations is yet another in a long, long list of LIES.
