It had been well established that Saddam had no nukes, so in reality, we're discussing biological weapons here. The kind of weapons that lots of countries have, including us, Russia, China, N. Korea, the list goes on. Could Iraq deliver such a payload to U.S. soil? No. Would Iraq even be interested in delivering such a payload to U.S. soil? Unlikely, since there are equally appealing targets much closer to home, including but not limited to Israel.
Saddam and Bin Laden had no interest in each other. Unlike Bin Laden, Saddam's primary interest was survival, autonomy and a life of debauchery and luxury. Bin Laden was not a vehicle toward that end.
But you're right, it was a guess on my part, no doubt. The thing is, I just don't think it mattered. Pakistan has WMDs, Pakistan has a relationship of sorts with Al Qaeda. Why are you not terrified of Pakistan? Iraq was already under our thumb, they were a minor concern at best. Bottom line is that I never gave a rat's ass about WMDs. This whole 'do as I say, not as I do' thing just doesn't wash with me.
I checked out the Hilary video, but I really can't stomach 8 minutes of her, and the video/sound quality didn't help either.
