Worth noting

1) An Agence France Press report for March 18, quoted by Daily news Online, says Italy's European affairs minister, Rocco Buttiglione, told the daily newspaper Il Messaggero in an interview published Thursday that the war on Iraq
"may have been a mistake. Perhaps there were ways it could have been avoided." ...

"What is certain is that it wasn't the best thing to do," he added,
thus breaking ranks from the pro-Bush administration of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.

2) This one is from CNN for March 21.
The United Nations' top two weapons experts said Sunday that the invasion of Iraq a year ago was not justified by the evidence in hand at the time.

"I think it's clear that in March, when the invasion took place, the evidence that had been brought forward was rapidly falling apart," Hans Blix, who oversaw the agency's investigation into whether Iraq had chemical and biological weapons, said on CNN's "Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer."

Blix described the evidence Secretary of State Colin Powell presented to the U.N. Security Council in February 2003 as "shaky," and said he related his opinion to U.S. officials, including national security adviser Condoleezza Rice.

"I think they chose to ignore us," Blix said.
As they did with everyone else in the world.
