Worries me that the leader of our country has had to backpedal so much his only recourse is to plead ignorance.

But I think the 45 minute claim is in danger of eclipsing the real issue (which is more important) that Iraq could have possessed WMDs, regardless of how long it took to launch them, and it was someone like Hussein that had his finger on the button.
Remember that during the war, Iraq did utilize weapons that they were not supposed to have, albeit conventional ones. If one of those had a Biological warhead, then all hell could have broken loose.
