Headlines Cheney: Weapons Report Justifies Iraq War

MIAMI - Vice President Dick Cheney asserted on Thursday that a report by the chief U.S. weapons inspector in Iraq, who found no evidence that Iraq produced weapons of mass destruction after 1991, justifies rather than undermines President Bush's decision to go to war.

The report shows that "delay, defer, wasn't an option," Cheney told a town-hall style meeting.

While Democrats seized on the new report by Charles Duelfer to bolster their case that invading Iraq was a mistake, Cheney focused on portions of the report that were more favorable to the administration's case.

Although it says Saddam's weapons program had deteriorated since the 1991 Gulf War and did not pose a threat to the world in 2003, the report also says that Saddam's main goal was to get international sanctions lifted.

"As soon as the sanctions were lifted he had every intention of going back" to his weapons program, Cheney said.

No, Cheney's just a psychic. I think he's going to replace Miss Cleo.

There is no doubt they had some kind of weapons, they started a war in '91. And they were helping North Korea develop their nuclear arsenal, how do they do that without alreading having some themselves.

So, Pipes,

Is that the TEST for war? By your standards, we ought to start wars with half the world, right?

SORRY NON-ARGUMENT, you go home...

allright there voiceofbullshit, but it's pretty tough to start a war if you have no weapons now isn't it. So ya i'd say that's a pretty good test as to wether they have weapons or not

Everyone knows IRAQ had weapons. US defense contractors sold them some. No weapons of mass destruction are needed to invade Kuwait. I think several militia groups in Montana have enough firepower to take over Kuwait.

We know they had weapons, but they had no WMD's.

They didn't start this war, we did...pay attention.
