Dept. of "now they tell us"

In the latest "confession" from someone who knew something but didn't bother to speak out at a time when it mattered, this from former U.N. weapons inspector Hans Blix:
Hans Blix, in a Sunday interview with Al Jazeera television said he and the Head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohamed El Baradei, were subjected to implicit threats from US Vice President Dick Cheney in the run-up to the Iraq war.

The former top UN inspector said Cheney had also threatened to defame ElBaradei and him if they refused to provide the "required" information on Iraq's alleged weapons of mass destruction.
Would it have made a difference if Blix and El Baradei made Cheney's threats public at the time? Probably not, but we'll never know. Does it make a difference now? Not to one million dead Iraqis and 4500+ U.S. and allied troops, that's for sure.
