Interim weapons report intensified debate
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

White House-AP -- A report by America's top weapons-hunter in Baghdad has added new fuel to the debate over the Iraq war.

For administration backers like Virginia Senator John Warner, David Kay's evidence shows the Iraqi regime was breaching U-N resolutions, even if no actual banned weapons have been found.

Warner says Saddam was in violation of U-N resolutions right up to the beginning of the war.

But for critics like Michigan Senator Carl Levin, the administration -- and the people who collect its intelligence -- have some explaining to do.

Levin wonders how the assessments could have been so far off and whether or not they were exaggerated.

For President Bush, the results are clear-cut. He says even this interim report shows Saddam Hussein was a threat, and it was right to topple him.
