President Bush met with British Prime Minister Tony Blair on September 20, 2001. ” ‘When Blair asked about Iraq,’ the 9/11 Commission reported, quoting from an NSC [National Security Council] summary of the two leaders’ conversation, ‘the president replied that Iraq was not the immediate problem. Some members of his administration, he commented, had expressed a different view, but he was the one responsible for making decisions.’ ”
