A person who jumps to conclusions without knowing the facts is not the kind of person that you want as Commander and Chief
-- George W. Bush; 10/27/04

Vice President Dick Cheney stated three days before U.S.-led coalition forces invaded Iraq this past March that Iraq “has reconstituted nuclear weapons.

The Bush administration claimed that Iraq was attempting to acquire uranium from Niger.

The October NIE claimed that Iraq was attempting to obtain aluminum tubes and magnets for use in a gas centrifuge-based uranium-enrichment program.

The administration claimed that Hussein was meeting with top nuclear weapons experts and that Iraq maintained the scientific know-how to produce nuclear weapons.

Bush said October 7 that Iraq was reconstructing buildings at sites where its nuclear weapons facilities had previously been located.

Bush began by dismissing the fact that UN weapons inspectors have found nothing since their return to Iraq, claiming that it was not their job to “conduct a scavenger hunt.” Rather, he said, “It is up to Iraq to show exactly where it is hiding its banned weapons, lay those weapons out for the world to see and destroy them as directed. Nothing like this has happened.”
...assertion that Iraq has built mobile germ-warfare laboratories,
...Bush went on to charge Iraq with possession of chemical and biological toxins
...Bush spoke of a stockpile of weapons sufficient “to subject millions of people to death by respiratory failure
...As for the quantities cited by Bush—25,000 liters of anthrax, 38,000 liters of botulinum, 500 tons of nerve agents
...Even more grotesque is Bush’s arithmetic on shells capable of carrying chemical agents. He cited CIA claims that Iraq had once had 30,000 such munitions
...Bush declared, “The International Atomic Energy Agency confirmed in the 1990s that Saddam Hussein had an advanced nuclear weapons development program, had a design for a nuclear weapon and was working on five different methods of enriching uranium for a bomb.” [continued]
