In a meeting in the Situation Room on the evening of September 12, 2001, “Even though [counterterrorism czar Richard] Clarke declared that ‘we have looked several times for state sponsorship of al Qaeda and not found any real linkages to Iraq,’ [President] Bush insisted that Clarke look again. ‘See if Saddam did this. See if he is linked in any way,’ charged Bush.”
