In the first Gulf War of the first Bush administration, Robert Gates of the
National Security Council, a future director of the CIA, said officials at
the White House ''lit a candle every night hoping Saddam Hussein would be
killed in a bunker.'' In a ceremony for that war, Defense Secretary Richard
Cheney, now the vice president, signed a 2,000-pound bomb, ''To Saddam, with
affection.'' Colin Powell, then chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and
now the secretary of state, signed the same bomb, ''You didn't move it, so
now you lose it.''
