Rafed Ahmed Alwan, alias "Curveball", provided the casus belli for the 2003 invasion of Iraq with his statements about an alleged weapons of mass destruction program. "The source is an eyewitness. An Iraqi chemical engineer who supervised one of these plants. He was actually present when biological agents were being manufactured." This was stated by US Secretary of State Colin Powell at the UN General Assembly on February 5th, 2003, citing "Operation Iraqi Freedom". Today we know that the war was based on a lie. The lie about the existence of mobile weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. The man of whom Colin Powell speaks lives in Germany today.
