57. Depends on what you mean by "widely."
The neocon tale of Saddam's army of flying monkeys that would deliver nuclear warheads across the Atlantic was never substantiated, but because it was repeated so often an went nearly unchallenged in the media, a lot of people were convinced that something was there that needed bombing. It was just never clear what, or where, and natural American laziness did the rest.

The charges were never specific enough to debunk--and this was obvious to millions--but they were ominous enough that millions more Americans were willing to let * have his war.
