“Bush and Blair met again at the president’s country retreat of Camp David, in Maryland, on September 7 [2002]. Blair was pleased to hear Bush decided to wait for a UN resolution, which would demand that Saddam allow weapons inspectors back into Iraq. But a press conference that day, President Bush said bluntly, “Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction.””
