Duelfer Report on Iraqi WMD:
"The former regime had no formal written strategy or plan for the revival of WMD after sanctions. Neither was there an identifiable group of WMD policymakers or planners separate from Saddam."

President Bush:
"The Duelfer report showed that Saddam was systematically gaming the system He was doing so with the intent of restarting his weapons program once the world looked away."


Vice President Cheney:
The report shows "delay, defer, wasn't an option."

John Edwards:
"They are willing to say left is right and up is down. The vice president, Dick Cheney, and the president need to recognize that the earth is actually round and that the sun is rising in the east."
