David Frum on The Duelfer Report

Couldn't agree more:

It's going to take a little while to read and digest all 1,000 pages of the Duelfer Report. But his key findings can be summed up in just a few sentences:
The economic sanctions against Iraq had begun to disintegrate as early as 1996. By 1999, they were well on the way to disappearing altogether. As soon as they did so, Saddam Hussein intended to reconstitute his weapons of mass destruction using the scientists and know-how he had carefully preserved through the 1990s.
In other words: If Iraq was not an imminent threat to the United States in 2001, Saddam Hussein fully intended for it to become an imminent threat as soon as possible thereafter.
There are people who regard this conclusion as no big deal. Let?s hope none of them become president.
