“On February 20, 2003, [Secretary of Defense Donald] Rumsfeld, again on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer program, said… ‘To the extent he [Saddam] is persuaded that it’s inevitable that he’s going to lose his position and his regime is going to be cast out, it’s at least possible …is it one percent? I don’t know. But it’s not zero percent that he might leave. The second possibility is the people in Iraq might decide he should leave–and help him. And so that’s a possibility.’ ”
