Carnegie Endowment for International Peace: “In August 2002, Vice President Cheney had said that inspections were useless, at best; he and Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld prefer to give credence to the defectors. Yet the conclusion emerges that the presence of U.N. inspectors during the ’90s, coupled with sanctions and outside military and diplomatic pressure, had kept Saddam in his box, without weapons of mass destruction, although he preferred to look defiant. Unlike the defectors and the national intelligence, the inspectors at least did not get it wrong.”
