On October 31, 1998, Congress “passed the Iraq Liberation Act. Declaring, ‘It should be the policy of the United States to support efforts to remove the regime headed by Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq and to promote the emergence of a democratic government to replace that regime,’ the legislation authorized $97 million to provide military support to the Iraqi opposition.”
