This request will probably be ignored or dismissed as "old news" by the administration. But so what?
CNN: Bush asked to explain UK war memo. Eighty-nine Democratic members of the U.S. Congress last week sent President George W. Bush a letter asking for explanation of a secret British memo that said "intelligence and facts were being fixed" to support the Iraq war in mid-2002.
Who can possibly doubt anymore that the Bush administration decided to launch the Iraq war long, long before it made the official "decision" in 2003? This was obvious even before the war started.
So when the Democrats -- whose spines remain missing in action -- profess to be shocked, shocked by this memo, they're either liars or fools. Or both.
(Speaking of feckless, the U.S. mass media are finally waking up to this memo, almost two weeks after it appeared in the British press. About time...)
