McGovern Speaks Out Against War in Iraq

From Staff and Wire Reports

Former Sen. George McGovern said the Bush administration has been misleading the public about the dangers Iraq poses. McGovern, speaking at a Wyoming university, said the administration has not shown a link between Iraq and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and has overstated Iraq's arsenal.

Noting that Saddam Hussein has "not so much as stuck his big toe beyond the borders of Iraq" since 1991, McGovern said President Bush should have given weapons inspectors more time.
