The Guardian goes big on Tony Blair's comments regarding Iraqi weapons of mass destruction during yesterday's Breakfast with Frost interview, viewing them as "his most downbeat assessment of the contentious issue so far" and "his first admission of fallibility over the central justification he gave for going to war with Iraq."

Expect to see Blair distancing himself more and more from the WMD issue in the weeks ahead as he tries to convince a public with a short memory that it wasn't the main justification for war at all.

And when he does, remember these quotes:

"We have absolutely no doubt at all that these weapons of mass destruction exist" (Source: Prime Minister's Press Conference, March 25th 2003)

"I have absolutely no doubt at all that they will find the clearest possible evidence of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction" (Source: House of Commons, June 4th 2003)

"I have absolutely no doubt at all that we will find evidence of weapons of mass destruction programmes" (Source: House of Commons Liaison Committee, July 8th 2003)

It's becoming increasingly clear that the Prime Minister was absolutely wrong.
