On Monday, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees posted a message on Twitter that compared the current bounty scandal to the Iraq war when the U.S. claimed there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but they ended up being wrong. It looks like after listening to responses from numerous people, he realized it wasn’t the best thing the say.
Brees took some time out of his day on Tuesday to apologize for his now famous WMD comment.
I apologize if the WMD comment offended anyone. Especially our military. There is no one I respect more than our service men and women

There’s no question that the comment Brees made yesterday was dumb. Right now it would be better for him and the current and former Saints players that are involved in the scandal to remain quiet.
