This story investigates Colin Powell's assertion that the United States was justified in going to war with Iraq because Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. The investigation found that Secretary Powell's claims were exaggerated and misrepresented. Greg Thielmann was "The Man who Knew" in this story, telling CBS News that the American public was not given the truth by Powell. Thielmann, who was the Director of the Office of Strategic Proliferation and Military Affairs, gave the truth behind Powell's accusations, and exposed them for not being backed up with valid evidence.
