Behe made a prediction, that irreducible complexity existed at the biochemical level, and this prediction was tested by his peers, and found to be incorrect.

I'm sorry, this wasn't correct. Behe said that natural selection cannot produce irreducible structures or mechanisms on the cellular scale, and his peers produced examples where it did. Behe made a global statement and a counter-example was found. The way I phrased it put the burden on Behe's peers to cover all the examples, when the way Behe set it up one counter example suffices.
