In a document entitled "Rebuilding America's Defenses: Strategy, Forces and Resources for a New Century" (backup) published by The American Enterprise Institute's "Project for a New American Century"(1), System Planning Corporation (SPC) International executive, Dov Zakheim, called for "some catastrophic and catalyzing event - like a new Pearl Harbor" being necessary to foster the frame of mind needed for the American public to support a war in the Middle East that would politically and culturally reshape the region. A respected and established voice in the intelligence community, his views were eagerly accepted, and Dov went from his position at Systems Planning Corporation to become the Comptroller of the Pentagon in May 2001. (2) Perhaps not so coincidentally, it was an SPC subsidiary, Tridata Corporation (Web site gone), that oversaw the investigation after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in 1993.

2007 April 27: White House and Pentagon
particularly Vice President Dick Cheney, were determined to attack
Iraq from the first days of the Bush administration, long before the
Sept. 11 attacks, and repeatedly stretched available intelligence to
build support for the war, according to CIA director George Tenet in
"At the Center of the Storm," saying they pushed the country to war
in Iraq without ever conducting a "serious debate" about whether
Saddam Hussein posed an imminent threat to the United States. "There
was never a serious debate that I know of within the administration
about the imminence of the Iraqi threat," Mr. Tenet writes in a
devastating judgment that is likely to be debated for many years.
Nor, he adds, "was there ever a significant discussion" about the
possibility of containing Iraq without an invasion. "Cheney and
Rumsfeld inserted 'crap' into public justifications for war." A
speech by Cheney "went well beyond what our analysis could support."
The speech charged, among other things, that Saddam had restarted his
nuclear program and would "acquire nuclear weapons fairly soon ...
perhaps within a year." Caught off-guard by the remarks, which had
not been cleared by the CIA, Tenet says he considered confronting the
vice president on the subject but did not.
