Bombing Iraq Discussed on 9/12, Ex-Aide to Bush SaysHe's too busy trying to find something else he really wants and will probably get.
The Bush administration considered bombing Iraq in retaliation almost immediately after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a former senior counter-terrorism advisor in the White House said.
Richard Clarke, the president's counter-terrorism coordinator at the time of the attacks, said Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld complained on Sept. 12 — after the administration was convinced that the Al Qaeda terrorist network was to blame — that "there aren't any good targets in Afghanistan and there are lots of good targets in Iraq."
A spokesman for Rumsfeld said he couldn't comment immediately.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the man who runs our military and how he reacted to 9/11!
