ABSTRACT
An essay is presented on the arguments regarding the war in Iraq. It examines the three main arguments in the war, such as the use of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein, Hussein as an evil man, and the connection between Hussein and al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden. It discusses the evidence-as-argument conflation and also compares the evidentiary arguments between former U.S. Senator Adlai Stevenson and Secretary of State Colin Powell.
