“To [U.K. Prime Minister] Tony Blair’s urging, during a dinner at the White House on September 20 [2001], that the focus ought to remain on overthrowing the Taliban, [President] Bush responded, ‘I agree with you, Tony. We must deal with this first. But when we have dealt with Afghanistan, we must come back to Iraq.’ “
