"He also helped build the case that Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction, which turned out to be wrong."
     -and
"More than 100 former US envoys signed a letter urging senators to reject the nomination."
     -and
"He once derided careerists at the US foreign ministry as having been "schooled in accommodation and compromise with foreigners, rather than aggressive advocacy of US interests"."
