In his speech to the 103rd National Convention of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) on August 26, 2002, Vice President Dick Cheney said, once Iraq acquired weapons of mass destruction: ” ‘Saddam Hussein could then be expected to seek domination of the entire Middle East, take control of a great portion of the world’s energy supplies, directly threaten American friends throughout the region, and subject the United States or any other nation to nuclear blackmail.’ ”
