I believe to remember that in the period concerned there were also rumours
that Bush himself had vast arsenals of WMDs at his fingertips, as, say,
nukes plus ICBMs. Strangely enough, it does not appear that any military
attack to the metropolitan US territory ever took place as a consequence,
unless of course one considers 9/11 in that light.
