Ms Pletka supported the war and Mr Corbyn was against it. The search for weapons of mass destruction (WMD) was central to the justification for the war in Iraq. So far none have been found. I think we've been misled, deceived. My fear is they're going to get a colonial occupation Jeremy Corbyn MP, British Labour party Danielle Pletka says she's till confident WMDs will be found, but it will take time.
