Sam Husseini followed-up with General Powell as he left CBS studios, raising the point that the man Powell cited in his famous February 4, 2003 Security Council appearance, Hussein Kamel, also had said that there were no more weapons of mass destruction.
This story was first broke, according to FAIR (http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=1845), by Newsweek, in late February of 2003 (dated for early March) -- before the open launch of the Iraq war and after Powell's speech.
When Husseini pressed to see of Powell was aware of this evidence, he adamantly asserted "Of course not!"
In pressing again for a direct confirmation that he was not aware of evidence contradicting public assertions about alleged-Iraqi WMD, Powell's only response was "I've answered your question."
