” ‘It doesn’t mean that an invasion [of Iraq] is imminent,’ [Secretary of State Colin] Powell told the Financial Times [on February 14, 2002]… Sanctions and support for the Iraqi opposition were still firm pillars of [Bush] administration policy, he said, and ‘if there is ever a point where we believe it’s necessary to do something else, we’ll do it. But one shouldn’t think that there is some plan on the President’s desk now waiting for him to sign off on. There is not.’ ”
