"In March [22] 1998 JINSA [Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs] issued a formal resolution warning of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq and calling for the indictment of Saddam Hussein and his chief lieutenants as war criminals. It called on the United States 'to provide overt political and financial support for legitimate, democratic opposition to Saddam Hussein in Iraq [including but]…not limited to: recognition of a government in exile should one be established, unfreezing of frozen Iraqi assets in the US to provide financial support for democratic Iraqi opposition groups, removing UN sanctions from areas controlled by opposition groups;…instituting Voice of Iraq broadcasts to be heard throughout Iraq; [and] instituting a no-fly zone throughout Iraq and a no drive zone where appropriate.' "
