Now and then


CHENEY: [If the U.S. had not invaded Iraq,] Saddam Hussein would still be in power. He would, at this point, be engaged in a nuclear arms race with Ahmadinejad, his blood enemy next door in Iran --

BLITZER: But he was being contained as we all know --

CHENEY: He was not being contained. He was not being contained, Wolf.


"Saddam Hussein has not developed any significant capacity with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbors."

-Secretary of State Colin Powell, Feb. 24, 2001

"We are able to keep [Saddam's] arms from him. His military forces have not been rebuilt."

-National Security Advisor Condi Rice, July 29, 2001
