The secret Downing Street memo - Sunday Times - Times Online

The secret Downing Street memo - Sunday Times - Times Online: "Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action."

This secrest memo does not prove that Blair lied as far as I can tell from reading it. It merely confirms what we all know already that Blair was on board the military expedition based on false intelligence a year in advance.

What is very clear is that there is a very determined insider plot to destroy Blair timed carefully to keep the pressure up till election day.

Somehow I doubt this will be the end of it. Let us hope for a new revelation every day.

Why did Brown step in again to resuce Blair.

He has to know by now that you can't make a deal with Blair unless you are George Bush.
