On July 9, 2003, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld said to the Senate Armed Services Committee: “The coalition did not act in Iraq because we had discovered dramatic new evidence of Iraq’s pursuit of WMD; we acted because we saw the existing evidence in a new light–through the prism of our experience on 9/11.”
