Iraqi Fabricator Who Passed Polygraph Identified

The Iraqi fabricator who provided false information that Iraq possessed mobile biological warfare laboratories and was believed in part because he had passed a polygraph “test” has been publicly identified as Major Mohammad Harith. Secretary of State Colin Powell used Harith’s bogus information in an attempt to justify the planned invasion of Iraq in a pre-war speech before the United Nations.

Knight Ridder reporters Jonathan S. Landay and Warren P. Strobel disclose Harith’s identity in an article titled, “Former CIA director used Pentagon ties to introduce Iraqi defector.” For discussion, see the message board thread, Iraqi Fabricator Passed Polygraph.
