A Reminder

I have let this go unremarked here - The Dowling Street Memo - that's the one that discussed the invasion of Iraq back in July 2002. The one producing this much reproduced paragraph:

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. 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 is old news - Slacktivist had a post up about it today, reminding me... It's upside down world, maybe, to read all the controversy about Newsweek, the hand-wringing about the deaths it caused - and almost nothing about the other story. Where the people who were responsible for the war - whose actions caused pain and suffering, are shown to have been lying.

Bah! enough!
