In questioning on the U.S. Consulate attack in Libya, Senator Dick Durbin discussed what was revealed by the administration in the days following the attack, and said that the American public has been misinformed before.

He cited Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction, saying, “I’d like to refer to five words for them to reflect on: Iraqi weapons of mass destruction. We were told by every level of government here there were Iraqi weapons of mass destruction that justified a war […] We’re still searching for those weapons […] We could have a hearing on that if you’d like.”
