A leaked British memo, and other documents, make it clear that Bush intended all along to invade Iraq — and lied about it to the American people.
The key line in the leaked memo, (as described by Getler from the Sunday Times Post), is the assessment by British intelligence, after a visit to Washington, that “the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.” That kind of assertion has been made by critics and commentators, but it has not been included in official post-invasion assessments here about how the country went to war under what turned out to be false premises about weapons of mass destruction and other matters.
Why has this information not been discussed? My guess is that the people in power are just sitting on this information until after the midterm elections to see if democrats can get control and then the fireworks will begin.
The same critics have been unsuccessful in getting an investigation into the misuse of the intelligence and as long as they are in the minority they never will.
This isn’t the last you’ll hear of this is my guess…
