    Let's see, Saddam's mentor took over in a coup during the LBJ presidency, Saddam himself took power during the CARTER presidency, Cheney was in congress, Rumsfeld was making Metamucil and Dramamine, and was brought in to make a one-time fact finding mission during a vacation (hence the notorious photo) which didn't produce a damn thing one way or another.

    Bush, jr. was failing in the oil business, at the time, and the Reagan people in the Bush I administration would later support the Baker commission.

    We also must remember that Iran was shooting accross the border and had even had some bombing runs.
