The administration, in my view, never feared that Saddam's future weapons would threaten our homeland. Rather, it feared that a nuclear-armed Saddam would break Israel's nuclear regional monopoly and therefore constitute a credible deterrent to U.S.-Israeli policy there.

You wrote "It is doubtful the American people would have supported an invasion of Iraq on the grounds that Saddam might some day try to develop weapons. Why should he use them against the United States? Without provocation he’d have no reason to commit personal and national suicide."
