In part: "'...a defanged Saddam has been forced to retreat behind his own borders. His nuclear, biological, and chemical military capabilities have been destroyed and will stay that way if we can figure out how to prevent him from getting them in the future the same way he got them in the past - from unscrupulous firms, both western and eastern...Saddam's military forces suffered a crushing defeat and are no longer a threat to any nation...Saddam's irrational, militant voice is no longer relevant in Arab politics...."
