As stated in “The Report of the Iraq Inquiry – Executive Summary”: “In his speech to the General Assembly on September 12, 2002, President Bush set out his veiw of the ‘grave and gathering danger’ posed by Saddam Hussein and challenged the UN to act to address Iraq’s failure to meet the obligations imposed by the Security Council since 1990. He made clear that, if Iraq defied the UN, the world must hold Iraq to account and the US would ‘work with the UN Security Council for the necessary resolutions.’ But the US would not stand by and do nothing in the face of the threat.”
