Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke to the UN on February 5, 2003, saying Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. ” ‘We know that Saddam Hussein is determined to keep his weapons of mass destruction; he’s determined to make more,’ the secretary said. ‘Should we take the risk that he will not someday use these weapons at a time and a place and in a manner of his choosing, at a time when the world is in a much weaker position to respond? The United States will not and cannot run that risk to the American people.’ ”
