“Saddam [Hussein] had presented a massive document to the UN [in December 2002], claiming that he had no WMD. [Chief UN weapons inspector] Hans Blix had corroborated this, by stating to the Security Council on 14 February, 2003, that the UN team had found no WMD in Iraq. [President] Bush rejected these findings, however, insisting that Saddam must go or be removed from power by military action.”
