The rest of that quote....”BUT THEY HAD THE CAPACITY TO MAKE WMDs”...

Talk about cherry picking and being “out of context”

Bush goes on to say a lot of good stuff about Iraq but again the left heard only what they wanted to

The UNMOVIC report was available for all to see. The problem with the Bush Administration claim of WMD was the ‘international definition of WMD. It gets very complicated.
The truth of the matter as proven by the UNMOVIC report was that Saddam Hussein illegally had ‘precursor, accelerants, and dual use materials. (Not to mention the designs and human capital to put them all together quickly) But trying to get GW to pronounce all that in a marketable sound byte without being mocked by the MSM was impossible.

Irrelevant. Freaking Mexico probably has the capacity to make WMD, but they sold this war on the guarantee that Iraq actually had WMD in their possession and had the ability to deliver said devices in a matter of minutes. Or have you conveniently forgotten?
