    Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction.
    Dick Cheney August 26, 2002




    Right now, Iraq is expanding and improving facilities that were used for the production of biological weapons.
    George W. Bush September 12, 2002




    If he declares he has none, then we will know that Saddam Hussein is once again misleading the world.
    Ari Fleischer December 2, 2002




    We know for a fact that there are weapons there.
    Ari Fleischer January 9, 2003




    Our intelligence officials estimate that Saddam Hussein had the materials to produce as much as 500 tons of sarin, mustard and VX nerve agent.
    George W. Bush January 28, 2003




    We know that Saddam Hussein is determined to keep his weapons of mass destruction, is determined to make more.
    Colin Powell February 5, 2003




    We have sources that tell us that Saddam Hussein recently authorized Iraqi field commanders to use chemical weapons -- the very weapons the dictator tells us he does not have.
    George Bush February 8, 2003




    So has the strategic decision been made to disarm Iraq of its weapons of mass destruction by the leadership in Baghdad? I think our judgment has to be clearly not.
    Colin Powell March 8, 2003




    Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised.
    George Bush March 17, 2003




    Well, there is no question that we have evidence and information that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction, biological and chemical particularly . . . all this will be made clear in the course of the operation, for whatever duration it takes.
    Ari Fleisher March 21, 2003




    There is no doubt that the regime of Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction. As this operation continues, those weapons will be identified, found, along with the people who have produced them and who guard them.
    Gen. Tommy Franks March 22, 2003




    I have no doubt we're going to find big stores of weapons of mass destruction.
    Kenneth Adelman, Defense Policy Board , March 23, 2003




    One of our top objectives is to find and destroy the WMD. There are a number of sites.
    Pentagon Spokeswoman Victoria Clark March 22, 2003




    We know where they are. They are in the area around Tikrit and Baghdad.
    Donald Rumsfeld March 30, 2003




    Obviously the administration intends to publicize all the weapons of mass destruction U.S. forces find -- and there will be plenty.
    Neocon scholar Robert Kagan April 9, 2003




    I think you have always heard, and you continue to hear from officials, a measure of high confidence that, indeed, the weapons of mass destruction will be found.
    Ari Fleischer April 10, 2003




    We are learning more as we interrogate or have discussions with Iraqi scientists and people within the Iraqi structure, that perhaps he destroyed some, perhaps he dispersed some. And so we will find them.
    George Bush April 24, 2003




    There are people who in large measure have information that we need . . . so that we can track down the weapons of mass destruction in that country. Donald Rumsfeld April 25, 2003




    We'll find them. It'll be a matter of time to do so.
    George Bush May 3, 2003




    I am confident that we will find evidence that makes it clear he had weapons of mass destruction.
    Colin Powell May 4, 2003




    I never believed that we'd just tumble over weapons of mass destruction in that country.
    Donald Rumsfeld May 4, 2003




    I'm not surprised if we begin to uncover the weapons program of Saddam Hussein -- because he had a weapons program.
    George W. Bush May 6, 2003




    U.S. officials never expected that "we were going to open garages and find" weapons of mass destruction.
    Condoleeza Rice May 12, 2003




    I just don't know whether it was all destroyed years ago -- I mean, there's no question that there were chemical weapons years ago -- whether they were destroyed right before the war, (or) whether they're still hidden.
    Maj. Gen. David Petraeus,
    Commander 101st Airborne May 13, 2003




    Before the war, there's no doubt in my mind that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, biological and chemical. I expected them to be found. I still expect them to be found.
    Gen. Michael Hagee,
    Commandant of the Marine Corps May 21, 2003




    Given time, given the number of prisoners now that we're interrogating, I'm confident that we're going to find weapons of mass destruction.
    Gen. Richard Myers,
    Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff May 26, 2003




    They may have had time to destroy them, and I don't know the answer.
    Donald Rumsfeld May 27, 2003




    For bureaucratic reasons, we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction (as justification for invading Iraq) because it was the one reason everyone could agree on.
    Paul Wolfowitz May 28, 2003

    Yeah. Me and a friend of mine were just politicing over how full of shit the government was after trying so hard to convince the American public ( and the world) that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and then going in, tearing shit up, and coming up with no type of real evidence of this. I guess it's backpeddling time now. At this point, probably like alot of other people, I have no idea what's truly happening, but it doens't seem on the level. But it never really did in the first place.

    I'm just surprised that they haven't "found" any WMD yet.

    honestly, i cant believe that either. all it would take is one 50 gallon drum of mustard gas, and then the media could run the 'wmd finally found' headline its been so eagerly waiting for... i cant believe they havent faked it yet. obviously they know that anything they find will be so suspect, tht half the world wont believe it anyway, but still... when has an out right lie stood in the way?

    bush is tied with clinton as being the 'best' president in the history of america. thats fucking insane. they must all be voting in florida.

    its not supposed, its proven. bin ladens family financed dubyas first oil company.
    michael moore is kind of a bit too much for me to take though. he goes too far, when he doesnt need to. he makes it too easy to pick him apart. you want to make a movie, make one about israel and they're involvement in all of this. fuck bin laden.

    I'm shocked about this as well. I fully expected the administration to plant something if they didn't find anything.
