31. Hmm...
I am told time after time that these lies were public knowledge at the time...yet no one seems to be able to come up with those links...this blurb here is nothing more than hearsay...where is the back up, the citations etc...surely if it was so well known they should be available..

It's interesting that IWR opponents didn't see the issue this way...nearly everyone of them acknowledged Saddam's alleged threat...

A sampling...

There is no question that Saddam Hussein is ignoring the will of the United Nations and that he has not honored the agreements he made following the Gulf War. Saddam Hussein is a dangerous force in the world. -Kent Conrad

Saddam Husseins regime has chemical and biological weapons and is trying to get nuclear capability. -Bob Graham

Saddam Husseins desire to obtain weapons of mass destruction is of grave concern. -Jim Jeffords

I commend President Bush for taking his case against Iraq to the American peopleand I agree with the President that Saddam is a despicable tyrant who must be disarmed. -Ted Kennedy

Iraq has grim and ghoulish weapons to carry out its evil plans. As part of the Gulf War cease-fire agreement, Saddam Hussein committed to destroying its chemical and biological and nuclear weapons programsinstead, Saddam Hussein is trying to add nuclear weapons to an arsenal that already includes chemical and biological weapons and ballistic missiles. -Barbara Mikulski

Saddam must give arms inspectors unfettered access. And, if he does not comply with this new U.N. resolution there will be consequences, including the use of appropriate military force. -Paul Wellstone

With regard to Iraq, I agree, Iraq presents a genuine threat, especially in the form of weapons of mass destruction, chemical, biological, and potentially nuclear weapons. I agree that Saddam Hussein is exceptionally dangerous and brutal, if not uniquely so, as the President argues. And I support the concept of regime change. -Russ Feingold
