Saddam Hussein WAS a threat to US

A report by Charles A. Duelfer, head of the CIA’s Iraq Survey Group weapons-hunting teams was released this week. The major focus by media and Democrats has been to reinforce John Kerry’s position of “Wrong war, wrong place, wrong time.” The main point of the report, according to them, is that Iraq has not been making WMD since 1991. This morning however, I heard on The Today Show from Charles Duelfer who said that large portions of the report come from Saddam’s interrogation. Can he really be trusted? Also, an article from the British news site icBerkshire.co.uk concludes from the same report that “Saddam would have indeed built up his capabilities, built up his strength and posed an even greater threat to the people of Iraq and the people of the region than before.”

A belief that American’s rarely question is that “if you want it enough, anything is possible.” Saddam did want to make WMD and was an “even starker” threat than we thought because of his intense motivation. Another part of the report shows that Saddam was actually buying off members of the UN through the oil for food program and was counting on France and others to veto the US if we ever pressed to go to war against Iraq. This reinforces the notion that John Kerry’s Iraq policy of letting the UN do it’s inspections wouldn’t have worked since these countries were in the hands of Saddam.

George Bush is accused of going to war for oil, but it turns out that the allies that John Kerry wants so badly were getting oil for not going to war while Saddam was lining his pockets with their gold.
