Did Bush Try to "Plant" WMDs in Iraq?

In an article that gives a rare glimpse into top top-secret operations inside Iraq, RAWSTORY reports that a special ops team tried to plant WMDs in Iraq after none were found, contrary to the Bush admin's claims.

The story quotes an inside source as saying,

“They come in the summer of 2003, bringing in Iraqis, interviewing them,” the UN source said. “Then they start talking about WMD and they say to [these Iraqi intelligence officers] that ‘Our President is in trouble. He went to war saying there are WMD and there are no WMD. What can we do? Can you help us?’”

The source said intelligence officers understood quickly what they were being asked to do and that the assumption was they were being asked to provide WMD in order for coalition forces to find them.
