In a lecture on February 20, 2003, Senator Chuck Hagel (R-NE) said, regarding the impending invasion of Iraq: ” ‘…a post-Saddam transition in Iraq must focus on security, economic stability and creating the conditions for democratic change. We should put aside the mistaken delusion that democracy is just around the corner.’ ”
