Atrios finds a scrubbed gaggle transcript from July 9, 2003 (three days after Joe Wilson's op-ed hit). What's in it? Ari Fleischer saying the case for war was based on WMDs. Here's the money quote:
But there's a bigger picture here, and this is what's fundamental -- the case for war against Iraq was based on the threat that Saddam Hussein posed because of his possession of weapons of mass destruction, chemical and biological, and his efforts to reconstitute a nuclear program. [Emphasis added.]
There it is for all you well-meaning MSM folks and all you Republicans who feel the need to suggest that WMD weren't the Administration's key justification for the war.

Whoomp there it is.
