Blair faces US probe over secret Iraq invasion plan - Sunday Times - Times Online

Let all the evils of the Bush Blair world hatch out.
It seems we may have Americans coming to London to examine the way we were spun into a war that we, the people did not want.

Is this the beginning of the end for Blair

I hope so.

But the American have not shown much talent in investigating anything recently, have they?

"Conyers said the memo raised �very serious questions about an abuse of power , . . it is a very serious constitutional matter�. Under the US constitution, only Congress has the power to declare war, and it was not until mid-October 2002 that Bush obtained the necessary authorisation to begin military preparations.
�There are members saying that if they knew then what they know now they wouldn�t have given him those powers (to wage war),� Conyers said.
By sending investigators to London, Conyers hopes to stir the US media into re-examining a story largely ignored in America since Bush�s re-election victory in November. "
