Bill Clinton calling on him to remove ".... Saddam Hussein's regime from

What is especially significant are the people who signed this letter
back in 1998, people like Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Richard
Armitage, and Donald Rumsfeld. After the terror and confusion of 9/11 in
2001 (which had nothing to do with Iraq), they were able to implement
their planned invasion of Iraq using the deception of WMD's and
non-existent links between Iraq and al-Qa'ida.
