“Among those who have revealed the early planning of the [Iraq] war are Paul O’Neill, President Bush’s first treasury secretary and an official member of the Cheney Energy Task Force. According to O’Neill, regime change in Iraq was the number one item on the agenda at the very first Bush administration National Security Council meeting on January 30, 2001, and ‘Already by February, the talk was mostly about logistics. Not the why [to invade Iraq], but the how and how quickly.’ ”
