"Downing St. Memo" confirms obvious
An underreported story emerged during the recent British elections of a leaked memo from a top British intelligence official. The memo was shared with Tony Blair and others and proves what every person with even rudimentary ability to see through the obvious crap that the Bush administration and their hacks have been selling us about the war. The "war" was needless, and a trumped up sham. The war was planned and decided upon long before any reason was invented, and the plan all along was to try to justify the invasion Bush and his chicken hawk pals had been lusting for for years with a combo of terrorist tie-in and WMDs.
At the risk of being repetitive, I direct you once more to Paul Krugman's excellent article in the Times for more on this and other matters.
