From the eyes-only UK memo reported on last month — but not here in America:
"C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. 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. "
Okay, anybody NOT get the picture yet? These guys were cooking the books, and the sabre-rattling diplomacy in the run-up was just posturing. This memo, taken together with the revelations about conjured up intelligence, would constitute an impeachable offense, and an investigative journalist's dream come true.
Good thing we got rid of Dan Rather.
