U.S. intelligence exaggerated Saddam Hussein’s weapons capability but not his threat to Israel, a U.S. senator said. “Don’t forget that he did have missiles that went over 150 kilometers, so he’s threatening Israel,” Sen.

Roberts is co-chairman of a panel that faulted the intelligence community for exaggerating Saddam’s weapons-of-mass-destruction capability.
