Took Long Enough

From the L.A. Times:

Reports in the British press this month based on documents indicating that President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair had conditionally agreed by July 2002 to invade Iraq appear to have blown over quickly in Britain.

But in the United States, where the reports at first received scant attention, there has been growing indignation among critics of the Bush White House, who say the documents help prove that the leaders made a secret decision to oust Iraqi President Saddam Hussein nearly a year before launching their attack, shaped intelligence to that aim and never seriously intended to avert the war through diplomacy.

Still not front page though (PDF file). I mean it only raises the question of whether there is a "smoking gun" showing Dear Leader a war criminal? Not that big a deal compared to, say, extreme cuisine. Well, at least they have something.

And the memo even made CNN's crawl on its front web page, though not the top story, which remains Satan's Cessna!

By the way, CNN - You are hurting America!...furthermore, Atrios is not spelled A-t-t-a-t-u-r-k. Please, just stop your awful bloggity-blog show. Thank you, that is all.
