2003: U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell presents evidence to the United Nations Security Council that Iraq has biological weapons and argues in favor of military action. Powell later admitted he had presented what turned out to be an inaccurate case to the UN on Iraqi weapons, and the intelligence he was relying on was, in some cases, "deliberately misleading."
