On “January 13 [2003], [Secretary of State Colin] Powell and [President] Bush met in the Oval Office…The president said he had make up his mind on war [with Iraq]. The US should go to war…’Are you with me on this?’ the president asked him now. ‘I think I have to do this, I want you with me.’ …’I’ll do the best I can,’ Powell answered. ‘Yes, sir, I will support you. I’m with you, Mr. President.’ ‘Time to put your war uniform on,’ the president said to the former general.”
