From what I understand, the inspectors were succesful at disarming Iraq; so much so that Saddam got pissed and kicked them out. So then.... as I've stated a few times on this board, I thought it entirely appropriate that Bush applied the military threat in the fall of '02 to pressure Saddam into re-admitting the inspectors (it worked). I was also upset with Clinton for not taking care of this sooner. But there simply was no demonstrated threat coming anywhere close to justifying starting a war with Iraq in March of 2003. But that's just my take on it.
