I see many state that Bush led Americans to believe Iraq had WMD's.

How about these guys, some before Bush was even President?


"One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line." President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998.
"If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program." President Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998.
"Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face." Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998.
"He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983." Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998.
"[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." Letter to President Clinton, signed by Sens. Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others Oct. 9, 1998.
"Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of Mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process." Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998.
"Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies." Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999.
"There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies." Letter to President Bush, Signed by Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL,) and others, Dec, 5, 2001.
"We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and the means of delivering them." Sen. Carl Levin (d, MI), Sept. 19, 2002.
"We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country." Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
"Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power." Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002.
"We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction." Senator Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002.
"The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..." Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002.
I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force-- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002.
"There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction." Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002,
"He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do." Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002.
"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002,
"We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction." Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002.
"[W]ithout question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real ..." Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003.

Germany warns of Iraq nuclear threat

February 24, 2001
Web posted at: 11:37 a.m. EST (1637 GMT)

BERLIN, Germany -- Saddam Hussein may be able to fire nuclear weapons at Iraq's neighbours within three years, Germany intelligence service has said.

The service also reported it may be able to hit Europe with missiles within five years.

The Federal Intelligence Service (BND) said Baghdad is stepping up efforts to produce chemical weapons and increase its ability to produce biological weapons.

"It is clear that we have suspicions about Iraq," a spokesman for the Berlin-based service was quoted as saying in selected German newspapers on Saturday.

The news comes just eight days after a joint U.S. and British bombing of Iraqi air defence targets outside the U.N. sanctioned no-fly zones around Baghdad.

The bombings, which attracted condemnation from Arab countries and other permanent members of the U.N. Security Council, were in response to cited increases in Saddam's efforts to shoot down Allied planes.

Iraq barred U.N. weapons inspectors in 1998, making it virtually impossible to keep track of what the West believes are Baghdad's efforts to develop its nuclear, chemical and biological arsenal.

The inspections and no-fly zones were created after Iraq's retreat from Kuwait following the Gulf War 10 years ago.

Information gathered by the BND has led the service to report in the Welt and Frankfurter Allgemeine that work has been observed at the Al Qaim site, believed to be the centre of Baghdad's nuclear programme.

Iraq is believed to be currently developing its Al Samoud and Ababil 100/Al Fatah short-range rockets, which can deliver a 300 kg payload 95 miles (150 km).

Medium-range rockets capable of carrying a warhead 1,900 miles (3,000 km) could be built by 2005 -- putting Europe within reach, BND said.

The service also reported the number of Iraqi sites involved in chemicals production has increased from 20 to 80 since the end of U.N. weapons inspections -- a quarter to be involved in making weapons.

It has also not ruled out the possibility that production may already have begun, following widespread procurement from abroad.

Following the U.S. and British attacks president George W. Bush said he would "watch very carefully" whether Saddam developed weapons of mass destruction and warned he would take "appropriate action" if he did so.

Some NATO allies, who were not informed in advance of the raids, criticised the air attacks, with France even condemning the raids as illegal.

German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer was attacked by his own Greens party, which grew out of the Cold War peace movement, for expressing understanding for the bombing at talks in Washington this week with U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.

Fischer, who opposed the Allied invasion of Iraq a decade ago, also said he was concerned about Iraq's efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction and missile technology.

Those wacky Germans!


Here's my favorite from the quotes I posted....

"In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members. It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons." Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002,
