Regarding a meeting at Camp David on September 15, 2001, President Bush said: ” ‘I sat down with my national security team to discuss the response [to the 9/11 attacks], and the subject of Iraq came up… And I said as plainly as I possibly could: *We’ll focus on Afghanistan. That’s where we’ll focus.* ‘ ”
