Pyongyang, May 19 (KCNA) -- The former vice-director of the CIA confessed recently that the information used by the U.S. to justify its invasion of Iraq was baseless.
The CIA vice-director from 2011 to 2013, in a book describing his 30
year-long service at the CIA, disclosed that the U.S. ignited a war
against Iraq on the basis of such false information that former
President of Iraq Saddam Hussein's regime had been developing WMDs,
having ties with Al-Qaeda.
A lot of pieces of information about the ties between Al-Qaeda and

much touted by the U.S. are nothing but fictions to keep south Korea
under its occupation forever and carry out its strategy for dominating
The U.S. is set to step up its arms buildup for carrying out the
above-said strategy under those pretexts. It will continue to cite the
above-said fictions and steadily escalate its political and military
pressure upon the DPRK in the days ahead till it attains its objective.
The international community should keep due vigilance against such move. -0
