According to counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke, on September 12, 2001: [President] Bush, pulled him aside in the White House Situation Room and asked him to look for evidence that Saddam had staged 9/11. When Clarke replied, ‘Mr. President, al-Qaeda did this,’ Bush said, ‘I know, I know, but…see if Saddam was involved. Just look.’ ”
