Finding: Clinton defeated Saddam's regime in 1998 

Dawkins writes:

Long, interesting, detailed article about the tomfoolery in the United States intelligence community leading up to the invasion of Iraq, and David Kay's new findings to that effect.

The essence: Saddam Hussein was neither reconstituting weapons programs nor preparing to use weapons against anyone. Rather, he was busy getting duped and bilked by his own military officials while obliviously crafting the manuscript of his novel.

Another interesting nugget that sticks out:
In addition, Dr. Kay said, it is now clear that an American bombing campaign against Iraq in 1998 destroyed much of the remaining infrastructure in chemical weapons programs.
