Sen. Lieberman asserts Saddam was developing bioweapons

In a recent appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Senator Joe Lieberman insisted that despite no evidence, Saddam Hussein was developing weapons of mass destruction and that Lieberman does not regret his vote to go to war.

The senator, who is retiring from his seat in 2012, made several comments about his beliefs that Hussein participated in bioweapon creation, even though no evidence was found during a bloody and costly war, the Huffington Post reports.

Lieberman spoke of the Duelfer Report, a comprehensive report conducted by Charles Duelfer on behalf of the United States government.

"But (Duelfer) found, and proved I think, that Saddam had every intention, and particularly to develop nuclear weapons, was developing chemical and biological weapons, and had a structure in place including nuclear scientists that he was prepared to support if he broke out of the sanctions, which he was inclined to do," Lieberman said, according to the Huffington Post. "So I think that the evidence is clear that if we did not do what we did that Saddam Hussein would today have at least chemical and biological weapons and have a nuclear program probably like Iran's beginning to move toward capabilities."

When asked in the interview if he would make the same decision to go to war, Lieberman responded he would make the same choices all over again.

"My answer is, yes," Lieberman said, according to the Huffington Post. "My answer is yes because Saddam was threatening the stability of the entire region. He'd shown that by his actions. I believe that the evidence is very clear that he was developing weapons of mass destruction.
