In an article for the January/February 2000 issue of Foreign Affairs, future National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice wrote: " 'Saddam Hussein's regime is isolated, his conventional military power has been severely weakened, his people live in poverty and terror, and he has no useful place in international politics. He is therefore determined to develop WMD. Nothing will change until Saddam is gone, so the United States must mobilize whatever resources it can, including support from his opposition, to remove him.' " [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
