And now this.
At the time of the 1990 offer, Iraq was embarked in a crash program to develop nuclear weapons in the face of a threatened U.S.-led attack over its occupation of Kuwait. By that date, Iraqi scientists had acquired a limited amount of weapons-grade enriched uranium but lacked several key components, including a workable design for a small nuclear warhead.
So Saddam attempted to build a nuclear weapon to threaten our forces before the Gulf War. Huh. And this comes from a former UN weapons inspector and nuclear weapons expert. This must somehow be George Bush's fault.
