On November 29, 2001, President of the American Enterprise Institute, Christopher DeMuth assembled a 12-member conservative think tank on Iraq. According to DeMuth: ” ‘We concluded that a confrontation with Saddam was inevitable. He was a gathering threat–the most menacing, active, and unavoidable threat. We agreed that Saddam would have to leave the scene before the problem would be addressed.’ That was the only way to transform the region.”
