Former National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft wrote an op-ed for the August 15, 2002, Wall Street Journal titled ‘Don’t Attack Saddam.’ ” ‘There is scant evidence to tie Saddam to terrorist organizations,’ he wrote, ‘and even less to the Sept. 11 attacks.’ To attack Iraq, while ignoring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he said, ‘could turn the whole region into a cauldron and, thus, destroy the war on terrorism.’ ”
