“On September 14 [2002], [President] Bush repeated his nuclear charge during his weekly radio address. ‘Saddam Hussein has the scientists and infrastructure for a nuclear-weapons program, and has illicitly sought to purchase the equipment needed to enrich uranium for a nuclear weapon.’ But, again, there was no new report. The IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency] document he was referring to was from 1996, and it described a weapons program the inspectors had long ago destroyed.
