Powell Stands by WMD Evidence

Powell also told Fox News he stands by the testimony he gave the United Nations Security Council regarding weapons of mass destruction.

He testified before the U.N. Security Council before the war with Iraq, saying there was no doubt that Saddam Hussein had biological weapons and the capability to rapidly produce more.

"Our conservative estimate is that Iraq today has a stockpile of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical-weapons agent," Powell testified on Feb. 5.

Powell told FOX he spent four days and nights with the CIA to make sure whatever he said was supported by U.S. intelligence holdings.

"Because it wasn't the president's credibility and my credibility in line, it was the credibility of the United States of America," Powell said.
