October 1, 2002      Complete Iraq timeline

       Senators Richard Lugar and Joseph Biden circulate an alternative to Bush's draft congressional resolution, which the two senators explain, “helps the President attract strong bipartisan support in Congress.” Their proposed resolution focuses on the use of force against Iraq as opposed to the entire region and specifies that the disarmament of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction would be the reason for using military force. Bush rejects the suggested alternative outright, complaining, “I don't want to get a resolution which ties my hands,” instead insisting that Congress pass a resolution that “sends a clear signal that this country is determined to disarm Iraq and thereby bring peace to the world.” Bush says, “My question is, what's changed [since the Congressional resolution passed in 1998]? Why would Congress want to weaken a resolution?” [White House, 10/1/02; Associated Press, 10/1/2002; Guardian, 10/2/2002] Saddam, he continues, is “more of a threat four years later” and “[a]ll of us recognize that the military option is not the first choice, but disarming this man is, because he represents a true threat to the United States.” [White House, 10/1/02; Guardian, 10/2/2002]
People and organizations involved: George W. Bush, Joseph Biden, Richard Lugar
