On January 26, 1998, “the neoconservative Project for a New American Century (PNAC) drafted a letter to President [Bill] Clinton calling for Saddam’s removal from power. …Specifically, it urged Clinton to ‘turn your Administration’s attention to implementing a strategy for removing Saddam’s regime from power. …If you act now to end the threat of weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. or its allies, you will be acting in the most fundamental national security interests of the country. If we accept a course of weakness and drift, we put our interests and our future at risk.’ “
