Spot the logical fallacy:
One of the things we hear again and again from the administration is that Saddam Hussein still had both the intention and the capability to build and possess weapons of mass destruction.

Isn't this a logical fallacy?

I mean, if you have the intention to build WMDs and the ability to build them, then you have WMDs. It's about as close to 2 + 2 = 4 as you get in human affairs.

I suppose it's best for the world that our Joshua chose to go into history and blogging rather than law or law enforcement. Here's a hint: motive, means, and OPPORTUNITY.
