Who is lying about Saddam Hussein’s WMD program here?
You know, Saddam Hussein has got to be delighted with what he’s hearing here today and what he’s seen in the last days, because he’s winning. His strategy is working. Make no mistake about it, his strategy is not to lift the sanctions. His strategy is to build weapons of mass destruction. And his strategy has been able to nip away at UNSCOM over the course of months so that he’s created sanctions fatigue among our allies, who also have a different set of international or national interpretation of interest here. And the fact is that our administration recognized some time ago that it had great difficulty building the coalition to support what was necessary to let *** **** and his team do what they do.
But wait a minute- I thought Bush and Blair and the CIA all lied about the WMD?
