On September 4, 2002, President Bush summoned 18 senior members of the House and Senate. “He needed a quick vote in Congress on a resolution that would grant him the authority to take on Saddam, perhaps with military action. …He wanted this vote within six weeks–before Congress left town so members could campaign for reelection.”
