More Kay

“Saddam, at least as judged by those scientists and other insiders who worked in his military-industrial programs, had not given up his aspirations and intentions to continue to acquire weapons of mass destruction. Even those senior officials we have interviewed who claim no direct knowledge of any on-going prohibited activities readily acknowledge that Saddam intended to resume these programs whenever the external restrictions were removed.” Remember that before September 2002, the proposal on the table was to remove sanctions after UN inspections. This was the French line right up to the war. Go back to status quo ante-1991, and allow Saddam to ramp up his capabilities.
