WMDs and Iraq

Scott Piro, Saddam Hussein's FBI interrogater, claims that Hussein misled the world on his supply of WMDs in order to intimidate Iran. Piro says that Hussein was completely surprised that the US invaded (probably because the French and the Russians assured him that they wouldn't allow it, in order to protect their illegal oil and weapons deals). Saddam planned to restart his WMD programs as soon as posible. "Saddam] still had the engineers. The folks that he needed to reconstitute his program are still there," says Piro. "He wanted to pursue all of WMD…to reconstitute his entire WMD program." Of course, it's still possible that he shipped them all to Syria. Or you could go with the Democrat version - that President Bush made it all up because he likes war.
