As Americans are confronted by acts of bioterrorism, powerful forces in the nationís capitol believe Iraqi President Saddam Hussein is to blame, for this and many other terrorist acts during the last decade.
Proponents of the plan, including former Clinton administration CIA director James Woolsey, contend Saddam Hussein was involved in the first World Trade Center bombing, the attempted assassination of President George H.W. Bush in 1993, and the ongoing state sponsorship of terrorist activities.
Foes of this plan argue that attacking Saddam will destabilize other nations in the region, most prominently Saudi Arabia, and no doubt destroy the carefully crafted coalition presently hunting for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan.
