Pro to the question "Should the US Have Attacked Iraq?"
"KEYES: I want to...get a read from Dan Goure in terms of that question of the urgency in the context of our terrorism policy of moving to deal with Saddam Hussein, to take him out of the picture, possibly replace him with another regime. Do you think that's something we need to move on now?
DAN GOURE, MSNBC MILITARY ANALYST: I think we do need to move on it soon, if not immediately, regardless of the war on terrorism. That is, this is an individual who has lived his entire life, his entire political career in war. He is the major destabilizer, frankly, of the region. We know that there are materials for weapons of mass destruction that we did not get. We've heard now from one of the insiders just a minute ago that the program is likely to be back on track and we have a fairly short window before you get a mad man with chemical, biological and possibly nuclear weapons."
