On January 13, 2003, "President Bush summoned Secretary of State Colin Powell for a 12-minute Oval Office meeting to say he had decided on war with Iraq. …The president very reluctantly confirmed to me [journalist Bob Woodward] that he had asked Powell directly for his support but added testily a rather obvious point. 'I didn't need his permission.' "
