Google search on "Weapons of Mass Destruction"

Follow the instructions below:

1) Go to www.Google.com
2) Type in (but don't hit return): "weapons of mass destruction";
3) Hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button, instead of the normal "Google search" button;
4) Read what appears to be a normal error message carefully.

I particularly like the reference to France:

If you are an Old European Country trying to protect your interests, make sure your options are left wide open as long as possible. Click the Tools menu, and then click on League of Nations. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Head in the Sand section and check settings for your exports to Iraq.

The fake WMD 404 page was implemented by Anthony Cox. I took a screenshot of the error just in case Google removes it from its servers - see below.

I didn't get the fake error page, but I did get sent to the U.S. Treasury - Office of Foreign Assets Control web page. Go figure!!
