It's been months since President Bush made the claim that Saddam Hussein had WMD, which was ONE of the justifications for going to war. Along with the fact that he was a murdering madman and the Iraqi people deserved the same freedom that we Americans take for granted. So far we have yet to find the WMD that President Bush claimed Hussein had. Was the intelligence we had wrong? Did Bush lie to the people, ala Clinton? Was everything just wrong? No. If you think were going to find Saddam's WMD in Iraq, you need to open your eyes. If we want to find the anthrax, botulinum and what ever else he had, we’re going to have to go to Syria, Pakistan, Iran or even Saudi Arabia. That's where he did them. Hussein wasn't a stupid man. He was a dumb, crazy murder, but not stupid. He thought that, if worse came to worse, we would go into Iraq, defeat his army and demand to be show the weapons. He would tell us that he had none, when all the time he had them moved out of the country or moved to the most remote part of Iraq. He never thought we would go into Baghdad and throw his ass out of power. There is a good chance we'll never find his weapons because we're not allowed to go into the countries that I mentioned above. But we are making progress. Chief Inspector David Kay says in his report that Saddam Hussein's regime had a clandestine network of biological laboratories, a live strain of deadly agent botulinum, sophisticated concealment efforts and advanced design work on prohibited longer-range missiles. And in front of the House and Senate Select Intelligence Committees, Keys said that at this point, we have found substantial evidence of an intent of senior-level Iraqi officials, including Saddam, to continue production at some future point in time of weapons of mass destruction. We have not found at this point actual weapons. What’s really need is to kill Saddam. When his scientists know he’s dead and won’t be coming after them, they’ll talk. As long as they think he’s alive they’ll be too afraid to talk to the U.S.
