Dakota, I know you are a big fan of Bill Clinton and since you don't trust Dubya perhaps you will consider Clinton's view of Iraqi WMD. As you will see, he knew Hussein had them, he just lacked the moral strength and intestinal fortitude to do anything about it.
First, from a May 10, 2002 briefing by chief weapons inspector Hans Blix (no fan of Bush)
"Although no weapons of mass destruction (WMD) were used by Iraq during the Gulf War, their existence in Iraq is well known."
Even Clinton agreed Saddam had to go:
Ultimately, neither inspections nor sanctions get to the core of the problem, which is the nature of the Iraqi regime. At his November 15 press conference, President Clinton identified the only solution: installing a new regime in Baghdad that has democratic legitimacy and respects human rights. From the “New Republic” Dec 7, 1998 http://www.washingtoninstitute.org/media/clawson/farce.htm
Or how about this from Clinton:
EXCERPT: CLINTON REPORT TO CONGRESS ON NATIONAL SECURITY STRATEGY
(Outlines U.S. policy for the Middle East, No. Africa, South Asia)
January 11, 2000
Operation Desert Fox in December 1998 successfully degraded the threat posed by Iraqi WMD in the wake of Baghdad's decision to cease cooperation with UN weapons inspectors. In December 1999, the United Nations Security Council passed UNSCR 1284, a new omnibus resolution on Iraq. The United States supports Resolution 1284 because it buttresses the containment of Iraq. This resolution reflects the consensus view of the Security Council that Iraq has still not met its obligations to the international community and, in particular, has failed to disband fully its proscribed WMD programs.
Clinton drew the line in the sand, Bush is carrying out the policy Clinton initiated
The Clinton administration is expressing fresh worries that Iraq - after a year without United Nations weapons inspections - may have resumed its illicit arms-development programs.
"Saddam Hussein has shown no hesitation in developing WMD in the past, and it is prudent to assume that he is still intent on such development," says the report, a copy of which was obtained by the Monitor. The report was sent to Congress Aug. 25 as required by a 1999 spending bill.
Any attempt by Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein to "reconstitute" prohibited weapons programs would cross one of several "red lines" for US military action set by President Clinton following Anglo-American airstrikes on Iraq last December.
Apparently, if you disagree with Clinton he supports invading your country and forcing you to live under our laws. Who is worse, Clinton or Hitler?
From a 1999 letter from Congress to Bill Clinton , co-signed by Democrats Joe Lieberman and John Kerry:
If international security could be assured by waiting until we find evidence that Saddam- has developed weapons of mass destruction and responding to the threat at that time, there would have been no need for Operation Desert Fox.
On a side note, this interesting letter to Clinton signed by some who are now in the current administration.
