“At 2:40 that afternoon [September 11, 2001], an aide to the Defense Secretary [Donald Rumsfeld] jotted notes of Rumsfeld’s conversations. Written deep in the War Room, the notes describe the Pentagon chief as wanting ‘best info fast; judge whether good enough hit S.H. [Saddam Hussein] at same time. Not only U.B.L. [Usama bin Laden].’ ‘Go massive,’ he noted. ‘Sweep it all up. Things related, and not.’ ”
