Are we supposed to believe Hussein. I believe Saddam Hussein about as much as I believe Barack Hussein.
Of course Sadaam could have been lying.But this is a plausible scenario just as certainly as was him having destroyed the WMDs in the weeks leading up to the war or his having moved them to Syria (which certainly explains all the truck activity at the border before the war).
Either way.....he faked it....he destroyed them....he moved them....the invasion was still justifiable.I've seen *many* quotes from prominent RATS during the late 90's and early this decade...including from BillyBob himself...telling us of how dangerous Sadaam was and how he needed to be *strongly* dealt with.
Yeah, they're about the same, as you said.
