On September 6, 2002, Central Command leader General Tommy Franks and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld “Briefed the president [Bush] and the NSC [National Security Council] on the latest war planning. But General Franks had something important to add. ‘Mr. President,’ he said, ‘we’ve been looking for Scud missiles and other weapons of mass destruction for ten years and haven’t found any yet, so I can’t tell you that I know that there are any specific weapons anywhere. I haven’t seen Scud one.’ ”
