He lied.

Of course we all knew that. But to hear a senior US official confirm that the president of the United States lied to every government on the planet makes me wonder – if we let them get away with that, what will be next?
From The Washington Post“: “In an interview in the next issue of Vanity Fair magazine, Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz cited “bureaucratic reasons” for focusing on Saddam Hussein’s alleged arsenal and said a “huge” reason for the war was to enable Washington to withdraw its troops from Saudi Arabia.
“For bureaucratic reasons we settled on one issue, weapons of mass destruction, because it was the one reason everyone could agree on,” Wolfowitz was quoted as saying.
He said one reason for going to war against Iraq that was “almost unnoticed but huge” was the need to maintain American forces in Saudi Arabia as long as Saddam was in power.”
