35. So you don't...
Edited on Fri Jan-05-07 01:03 PM by SaveElmer
What is clear is that opponents of the IWR were basing their opposition not on the notion that Saddam did not have WMD's, but that the method by which those WMD's would be eliminated was the wrong one in their judgement...and they were right

Russ Feingold in his speeh annoucing his opposition to the IWR said the following...

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

Was Feingold ignoring intelligence that contradicted this. It is pretty clear he accepted the Administrations warning about the alleged danger posed by Saddam...which of course turned out to be false.
