“On Saturday, September 21 [2002], The New York Times reported in its lead story that [President] Bush had recently received a highly detailed set of war plans on Iraq from [Central Command leader] General [Tommy] Franks. …In an interview for the Times story, the president’s spokesman, Ari Fleischer, pointedly departed from previous statements throughout the spring and summer that the president did not have war plans at the ready. ‘I am not saying there is no plan on his desk.’ ”

 – Bob Woodward, Plan of Attack, Page 188
