“A top-secret National Security Presidential Directive entitled ‘Iraq: Goals, Objectives and Strategy’ and signed by [President] Bush on August 29 [2002] spoke unambiguously about the need to ‘free Iraq in order to eliminate Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, their means of delivery and associated programs, to prevent Iraq from breaking out of containment and becoming a more dangerous threat to the region and beyond.’ “

 – Julian E. Zelizer, ed., The Presidency of George W. Bush, Page 99
