“On September 19 [2002], the president [Bush] met with 11 House members in the Cabinet Room. ‘The war on terrorism is going okay; we are hunting down al Qaeda one-by-one,’ Bush began. ‘The biggest threat, however, is Saddam Hussein and his weapons of mass destruction. He can blow up Israel and that can trigger an international conflict…We will take over the oil fields early–and mitigate the oil shock.’ ”

 – Bob Woodward, Plan of Attack, Page 186
