Simply stated, there is no doubt that Saddam Hussein now has weapons of mass destruction; there is no doubt that he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us.
And:
"We've also discovered through intelligence that Iraq has a growing fleet of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used to disperse chemical and biological weapons across broad areas. We're concerned that Iraq is exploring ways of using these UAVs for missions targeting the United States."
And:

That video is sickening, just as everything in it was at the time.
Back when General Wesley Clark was a more honest, impartial truth-teller, he stated that he was shown a classified paper declaring the intentions to invade 7 nations in total...so, there's still unfinished business out there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mXsoYrXaMQ

And then consider that the drumbeat building up to motivate a reluctant population to support new wars is often created by fake atrocity stories.

Recall, that the first Gulf War...to drive Saddam's forces out of Kuwait was kicked off by the testimony of a 15 year old Kuwaiti girl to Congress back in 1990, who claimed that she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers bursting in to the intensive care wing of the main hospital and taking babies out of incubators to leave them dying on the floor!

As anyone who followed up the story later would have realized, the Girl was the daughter of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the US, and she had been coached on acting and presentation before the committee by the Washington PR firm of Hill & Knowlton...who were being paid by an organization of suddenly homeless but wealthy Kuwaiti ex-pats known as the Citizens for a Free Kuwait to beat the drum for a US invasion to force the Iraqis out of their country:

And, if that's not bad enough, these war propagandists don't even have any original ideas anymore! As I learned from part of an online lecture by Mickey Huff of Project Censored, that scripted false testimony of killing babies in a gruesome way bears remarkable similarities to a story concocted by the father of Propaganda - Edward Bernays...to turn public opinion in favor of the US joining in near the close of the Great War in 1917! But Bernays contribution to the Propaganda War effort...that German soldiers were bayonneting Belgian babies and hoisting them up over their heads, was just one of many stories and strategies being developed by British, French and other propagandists for the allied cause:

Truthseeker Archive: WWI Anti-German Propaganda - false atrocity stories of "bayoneting babies", "making soap from corpses of their dead soldiers", etc

I wonder if Bernays was responsible for creating the fake Gulf of Tonkin attack on US warships that Lyndon Johnson used to justify expanding the Vietnam War to a full invasion? Bernays lived over 100 years, and had a long career as a destructive force developing strategies to warp public opinions and attitudes for government and business clients alike.

These are just some of the reasons why CNN viewers need to learn and understand some history, and realize how many stories and events get recycled over and over again.
