"An Iraqi defector who went by the codename 'Curveball' has publicly admitted for the first time that he made up stories about mobile bioweapons trucks and secret factories to try to bring down Saddam Hussein’s regime. 'I had a problem with the Saddam regime,' Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, who fled Iraq in 1995, told The Guardian newspaper. 'I wanted to get rid of him and now I had this chance.'" (02/15/11)
