[efoods]Tony Blair was told Saddam Hussein may not have been able to use his chemical weapons ten days before war was declared, the Iraq Inquiry was told today.
The second day of public hearings heard the Foreign Office had no evidence Saddam was trying to supply chemical or biological weapons to terrorists.
The inquiry also heard Iraq was only the fourth most dangerous rouge state trying to develop weapons of mass destruction prior to the 2003 invasion.
Officials were more alarmed by developments in Libya, Iran and North Korea, the Foreign Office’s head of counter-proliferation said.
