Rummy only SHOOK hands with Saddam

Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL), supporting the Iraq war resolution in October, 2002:
I support this resolution because the threat posed by the brutal dictatorship of Saddam Hussein is real, immediate, and growing.

The threat is real because Saddam possesses conventional, chemical and biological weapons. He is doing everything in his power to acquire the means to construct and field nuclear weapons.

The threat is real because Saddam has used his conventional and chemical weapons to attack his neighbors and his own people.
So tell me, Senator, why were you holding hands with Saddam just three months after his chemical attack on Halabja?

That photo is from Joseph Wilson's The Politics of Truth. Ever the joker, Saddam challenges Wilson to pull his finger.

Lovers' quarrels can be so nasty.
