Kudos to Rep John Conyers for this letter
extra kudos for using a phrase from Orwell "memory hole"

The memo is in the Times (no not the New York Times the real Times).

As claimed by the Blair government there is nothing new there. Bush and Blair had decided to invade by August 2001. They showed total contempt for international law, the US Constitution, the UK unwritten constitution, the evidence, and logic. There is no hint of interest in spreading Democracy in the memo. Of course, there was no planning for the occupation. All well known years ago. Nothing to see here folks. move on.

Update: Atrios complains that the US media have virtually ignored the memo. Kevin Drum notes that Knight Ridder has picked up the story.
