President Bush and Vice President Cheney are now saying the reason for the Iraq War was because Saddam could have created WMDs. This comes after experts have said that no WMDs will likely be found and a commission is investigating pre-war intel.
Cheney told Republican donors yesterday "We know that Saddam Hussein had the intent to arm his regime with weapons of mass destruction. And Saddam Hussein had something else -- he had a record of using weapons of mass destruction..."
Before the US invaded Iraq, Bush and Cheney stated that Iraq was an imminent threat which definitely had WMDs. The intel commission will deliver its report by March 2005 which is well after the next election. Bush says they need to "take its time."
