I can't really believe that the US government did not know about that and had to learn from questioning Saddam Hussein. All this time I thought that the government knew that Saddam was bluffing and Cheney and Bush chose to ignore this knowledge.

Maybe the lower ranks knew but the political appointees were there to accommodate the foreign policy under Clinton and Bush Jr.
