I think you are right about the plan probably existing for a long while. One of the expert commentators on Fox once said, during the war phase, that these plans exist as contingencies, and include a lot of countries, some of which we currently regard as allies. These plans are revised and updated regularly, but it doesn't mean we're going to put them into use unless provoked.

I wonder if these are the ones O'Neill is talking about, and then he trumped them up to make President Bush look bad?

Sinkmaster did have plans drawn up vis a vis Hussein and Bin Laden. It has been well documented. Clinton did nothing about it, but Sandy Berger and the NSC felt that Bin Laden and Hussein would cause troubles so they drafted plans on how to deal with them, then dumped the info onto the Bush/Cheney team. Of course the administration was discussing it. The few professionals in the Clinton white house told the Bush people the dangers, and Bush's folks responded by actually discussing it. What is the great big deal here anyways?

Exactly right.
