After President Bush met with congressional leaders from both parties on January 8, 2003, and told them he had not yet made a decision about going to war with Iraq, he “met in the residence with Republican leaders only, and was more candid. ‘There’s a good chance I’ll have to address the nation and commit troops to war. It’s clear Saddam Hussein is not disarming. I want the process to work before I ratchet up the noise.’ ”
