[Future Bush Administration members] Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Richard Perle were among eighteen people who had signed a public letter from a group they named, ‘The Project for the New American Century’ calling for Saddam’s ouster. It is often forgotten, but regime change was also the explicitly stated policy of the Clinton administration, and was the goal of the Iraq Liberation act passed by Congress in [October] 1998.” [The 15th of the month used for date sorting purposes only.]
