Kessler Sidebar Update: A fortuitous post by Ombudsgod includes a link that shows that the misleading Cheney quote on Saddam having "reconstituted nuclear weapons" was the handiwork of the Post's Dana Milbank in this March 17, 2003 "analysis":

Far from envisioning a peaceful solution, Cheney leveled a serious new allegation that implied Saddam already has nuclear weapons. ``We know he's been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons, and we believe he has, in fact, reconstituted nuclear weapons,'' Cheney said.


I can't recall if the Post ever corrected this mistake. If not, it would help explain why they reproduced the error today.

(Here's a Sept. 17 Ombudsgod post on the subject.
