On May 28, 2003, “in a curious kind of defense of the U.S. occupying force having not yet found any illegal weapons in Iraq, Deputy Secretary of Defense [Paul] Wolfowitz implied poor performance on the part of the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency]. He said, ‘I mean, it took time in 1991, if you recall. I think it was three months after the war that the IAEA was prepared to declare there was no nuclear program, and it was about three to six months later that they discovered that, in fact, they were pursuing not one, but I think four different routes to nuclear weapons…’ “
