Quick thought: We went to war to disarm Iraq, not to halt some nebulous "weapons program". Tom Tomorrow over at This Modern World brings up a good point, and one which we'd like to strengthen -- the Bush administration is trying to change the language of the debate. Bush said recently that he's sure there was an Iraqi "weapons program" during "the last decade". Both of these statements seem to be true; several Iraqi scientists said that Iraq tried to preserve some capacity, if no stockpiles, so that it could get back in the game at some future date. This would qualify as a weapons program over the last decade, but its not the same "weapons program" which was used to justify the war against Iraq.

To put this all in perspective, here is a link to the full text of Colin Powell's presentation to the U.N. Security Council on February 5 of this year. It is, to say the least, interesting reading in light of how the weapons hunt has gone so far, as this was the speech that provided the justification for the war on Iraq.
