From secret notes on a briefing by Richard Dearlove, head of the MI-6, to Tony Blair and his national security staff on July 23rd 2002, 6 weeks before Bush and Cheney started their campaign to sell the invasion of Iraq:
[Richard Dearlove] 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. 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.
One paragraph. Takes your breath away

I suppose it would, if I already wasn't well aware the facts about the war in Iraq and the grave distortions put to the media and the people by the Bush administration before, during, and now after the Iraq war... or are we still during the war?
