“On February 14 [1991], two weeks before the end of the [first Gulf] war, President [George H.W.] Bush had encouraged Iraqis to overthrow Saddam Hussein. ‘There’s another way for the bloodshed to stop,’ Bush had said, ‘and that is for the Iraqi military and the Iraqi people to take matters into their own hands,’ and remove their despotic leader. His words were broadcast into Iraq.”
