ABSTRACT
The article focuses on apparently revisionist accounts by former U.S. President Bill Clinton and former political strategist Karl Rove of the events leading up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003. While in Iowa in autumn of 2007, Clinton said he never believed in invading Iraq; however, a former National Security Council staffer contradicts this assertion. Karl Rove, in a November 2007 interview, claimed that President George W. Bush's administration did not push for war until after the 2002 midterm elections.
