O'Reilly is such a stupid jackass.

The only other person that I can think of besides Ritter and Wanniski who even expressed doubt about Saddam having WMDs was Nation columnist Alexander Cockburn: http://www.thenation.com/doc/20030303/acockburn

I'm not sure what any of this proves however since Wanniski and Cockburn both exist on the furthest fringes of the political spectrum. Cockburn once wrote a column calling for Paul Wellstone's defeat because he deemed the senator too conservative.

Cockburn has been described as a "liar" and a "skunk" and a "discredited Stalinist" for whom "Facts, truths and principles be damned." And those are just his fellow writers at the Nation ... http://www.thenation.com/doc/20021223/exchange

I don't buy Sullivan.

And there were plenty of people who believed that even if Saddam was developing WMD's Iraq did not constitute a threat to the United States. In fact The American Conservative was founded by conservatives who said so.

Sullivan and others simply called them names and derationalized their objections (their crazies, Anti-Semities, or defeatists).
