Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith said: “Ultimately, President Bush concluded that he had to remove Saddam’s regime from power by war. In my judgment, his moment of decision came in December 2002, when the Iraqi regime made its unsatisfactory WMD declaration to the United Nations. From that point forward, it seemed to me, the only way Saddam Hussein could have prevented war was by recognizing the inevitability of defeat and relinquishing power.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
