” ‘[Going to Baghdad] was never part of our objective, [Secretary of Defense Dick] Cheney said in an August [14] 1992 speech. ‘It wasn’t what the country signed up for. …Once we had rounded him up and gotten rid of [Saddam’s] government, then the question is what do you put in its place? You know, you then have accepted the responsibility for governing Iraq.’ ”
