“At a prime time televised news conference the next night, March 6 [2003], the president [Bush] repeated his case that Saddam was not disarming. ‘Iraqi operatives continue to hide biological and chemical agents to avoid detection by inspectors,’ he claimed. He said, ‘We’re still in the final stages of diplomacy,’ and added, ‘We’re calling for the vote’ at the UN on the second resolution. ‘It’s time for people to show their cards…I’ve not made up our mind about military action.’ ”
