“President Bush managed the crisis in a way that almost guaranteed that the use of force [in Iraq] would become the only feasible option. He did this backing it with the ultimatum in his UN speech of September [12, 2002], and by ordering a massive buildup of American arms and military forces in the region, which, for logistical reasons, couldn’t remain in the area indefinitely without being used.”

 – Scott McClellan, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception, Page 143
