“On March 15 [2002], [Vice President Dick] Cheney flew to the USS John C. Stennis, the aircraft carrier stationed in the Arabian Sea with a crew of 5,000.” Cheney addressed the crew: ” ‘Our next objective is to prevent terrorists, and the regimes that sponsor terror, from threatening America or our friends and allies with weapons of mass destruction…The United States will not permit the forces of terror to gain the tools of genocide.’ ”
