New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has always been outspoken about his perceived lack of evidence in the bounty case that has gotten several of his teammates and coaches suspended by the NFL.

Brees took to Twitter to explain his stance saying, "If NFL fans were told there were "weapons of mass destruction" enough times, they'd believe it. But what happens when you don't find any????"

Of course, the weapons of mass destruction claim was one of the reasons for the Iraq War that former President George W. Bush and his administration said were present in Iraq.

Brees then said he wanted to apologize "if the WMD comment offended anyone. Especially our military. There is no one I respect more than our service men and women."

The NFL released its evidence to the media yesterday, further explaining why the players and coaches received the punishment they did.
