Bush 'Outed' on Iraq: Invasion a priority from the start: "Invading Iraq to topple Saddam Hussein was a top priority at U.S. President George Bush's very first National Security Council meeting — seven full months before the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks Bush then cited as a reason for "pre-emptively" disarming Saddam's regime. "From the very beginning, there was a conviction that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go," former Treasury secretary Paul O'Neill has confirmed in a whistle-blowing appearance on the CBS program 60 Minutes. "It was all about finding a way to do it. That was the tone of it. The president saying `Go find me a way to do this.'" O'Neill even saw a secret memo entitled Plan for Post-Saddam Iraq and other related documents."
