Former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill confirms that the White House planned a pre-emptive war on Iraq before 9/11.

From CNN:
"From the very beginning, there was a conviction that Saddam Hussein was a bad person and that he needed to go," O'Neill told CBS, according to excerpts released Saturday by the network. "For me, the notion of pre-emption, that the U.S. has the unilateral right to do whatever we decide to do, is a really huge leap."
Perhaps this whole house of cards post-9/11 argument for the war is finally about to come down?

O'Neill also described Bush's presence in his Cabinet meetings as "like a blind man in a roomful of deaf people."
