Bush’s War: Break It … and It’s Yours

  • Robert Swansbrough
Part of the The Evolving American Presidency Series book series (EAP)


The Bush administration’s call for a preemptive war against Iraq—replete with frightening warnings about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, Saddam Hussein’s links to al Qaeda and hints of the Iraqi dictator’s role in the 9/11 attacks on America—created a powerful juggernaut toward a “war of choice” with Iraq.1 Despite President George W. Bush’s October 7, 2002, assurance that approval of the congressional resolution authorizing war “does not mean that military action is imminent or unavoidable,” military plans for an invasion to topple Saddam Hussein gained deadly traction.2
