Bush administration scoffs at Iraq's weapons report

The Bush administration rejected Iraq's weapons declaration Thursday, saying it was riddled with omissions and warning Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein that he had moved his nation closer to war as a result. Secretary of State Colin Powell called the 12,000-page document that Iraq delivered two weeks ago "a catalog of recycled information and flagrant omissions." He said it failed to account for chemical and biological weapons Iraq was known to possess before 1998 or weapons development it had undertaken since.
