“…in early December [2] 1999, at a little-noticed debate among Republican contenders just as the primary season was starting in New Hampshire, [presidential hopeful George W.] Bush went public and vowed to take down Saddam. ‘No one envisioned him still standing,’ Bush said. ‘It’s time to finish the task. And if I found that in any way, shape or form that he was developing weapons of mass destruction, I’d take them out. I’m surprised he’s still there.’ ”

 – Craig Unger, The Fall of the House of Bush, Page 175
