“Senate Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Joseph Biden [D-DE] and the ranking Republican on the committee, Richard Lugar of Indiana, wrote the president [Bush] on September 10 [2002] cautioning against a vote on any war resolution [against Iraq] until after the [November 2002] elections. Both men made it clear that leaving Saddam with weapons of mass destruction wasn’t acceptable: ‘Simply put, either these weapons must be dislodged from Iraq, or Saddam Hussein must be dislodged from power.’ ”
