President George W. Bush, when asked if Iraq would be discussed by himself and the Turkish Prime Minister: “Well, I’m going to have a discussion with the Prime Minister about Iraq. And my expectations, most importantly, are not from Turkey, are from Iraq. I expect Saddam Hussein to let inspectors back into the country. We want to know whether he’s developing weapons of mass destruction. He claims he’s not; let the world in to see. And if he doesn’t, we’ll have to deal with that at the appropriate time.”
