On September 7, 2002, British Prime Minister Tony Blair met with President Bush “for a three hour talk on Iraq and dinner…Blair and Bush took questions from reporters. They said they were committed to ending Saddam’s threat once and for all…Bush asserted unequivocally, ‘Saddam Hussein possesses weapons of mass destruction.’…’I’m with you,’ the prime minister replied, …pledging flat out to commit British military force if necessary, the critical promise Bush had been seeking.”
