Former Iraqi president Saddam Hussein told an FBI interviewer before he was hanged that he led the world to believe that his country had weapons of mass destruction because he did not want to appear weak to the Islamic Republic of Iran, according to declassified FBI documents released Wednesday.
Hussein was quoted as saying that he was so concerned about radical Iranian leaders that he was ready to sign a security agreement with the United States guaranteeing protection from Iran....
Hussein also referred to Osama Bin Laden as a "zealot" and said that he did not deal with al-Qaida....

Oh, what a tangled web we weave. . . .
Are we supposed to believe Hussein. I believe Saddam Hussein about as much as I believe Barack Hussein.
“Saddam Said He Faked Having WMDs”
Thats not the only thing he faked.... there it has been said now we can carry on a serious conversation
I guess you screwed up SADdam.
I call BS! MAJOR BS!
It doesn’t change the fact that everyone....liberals, conservatives, Americans, Europeans, United Nations, etc....all thought Iraq had WMDs.
The fact that Sadaam was lying about it changed nothing and does not make President Bush a liar.
Besides, do you trust an admitted liar to now tell you the truth?
He lies. What about the people he gassed? I guess that was not a weapon of mass destruction. He was simply misunderstood.
blah, blah, blah....He also believes he was a wonderful person!!
Sadaam, on the record, murdered many Kurds and Iranians with chemical weapons.. AND some of them were found in Iraq..
Weapons of Mass Destruction WERE found..
He just did it to impress Jodie Foster.
I guess when you are sitting around waiting to be hanged you can say anything you want.
The time to say those things was BEFORE your country is invaded, and perhaps co-operating with all those useless nations inspectors would have been a beneficial as well.
Nothing here that everyone (except for the totally ignorant) hasn’t known for years.
If you walk into a bank and you stick your finger in your coat pocket and tell the teller you have a gun, the teller assumes you have a gun.
If you are leaving the scene of a crime and you stick your finger in your pocket and point it at the cops and tell them you have a gun, guess what? The cops will shoot you.
If you make it a point to make everyone think you have weapons of mass destruction. Guess what? You are going to get invaded and hung.
Sounds good to me.
