‘Now, I believe the facts that have brought us to this fateful vote are not in doubt. Saddam Hussein is a tyrant who has tortured and killed his own people, even his own family members, to maintain his iron grip on power. … In 1998, the United States also changed its underlying policy toward Iraq from containment to regime change and began to examine options to effect such a change… In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including Al Qaeda members… Now this much is undisputed.’
Senator Hillary Clinton – 2002
