1,368. 10/31/1998

“[T]he Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 [was] passed by President [Bill] Clinton [on October 31, 1998]. It was then that U.S. policy became regime change, but it did so–as the Act makes clear–because of the WMD issue and Saddam’s breach of UN resolutions. It wasn’t to do with the moral case against Saddam; it was precisely to do with the WMD threat, and arose out of his defiance of the will of the international community.”

 – Tony Blair, A Journey, Page 285
