In an appearance on Meet the Press on March 16, 2003, Vice President Dick Cheney said the International Atomic Energy Agency, who had recently exposed the Niger documents as forgeries, had ” ‘consistently underestimated or missed what it was Saddam Hussein was doing. …We know [Saddam] has been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. And we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons.’ ”
