Powell Less Sure of Pre-Iraq Intelligence
NPR's Michele Kelemen reports Secretary of State Colin Powell is putting a bit of distance between his pre-war views on the alleged weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and the growing evidence that there were none.

Today he admits that if knew then what he knows today he might not have been so ready to go to war.
