Letter D Win one for the peace sign


In his recent speech, Secretary of State Colin Powell asserted that Saddam Hussein had ties to al-Qaida. Yet intelligence operatives in the CIA and the FBI argue that such ties do not exist.

He also states Saddam is a bad man with bad weapons. We know Saddam is bad, but he was just as bad in the mid-1990s when an aggressive series of weapons inspections resulted in the destruction of an enormous portion of his weapons capability. History shows that inspections can disarm Iraq. Let’s push for a tough inspections regime and win this one without war.
