All evidence? Note that the UN had announced that after Desert Storm , a lot of WMD were missing*, that Saddam used nerve gas on his own people, and that he announced he was rebuilding him WMD program.

Now, it's true that after the US threatened invasion, so SH let the UN back in and the UN went in and couldnt find anything- then there was grave doubts and no reason to invade, but certainly up until then the smart money would have been that SH had WMD.

*most were found , after SH was taken down, rusting and lost in the desert.
