"Reality-Based Community" My Ass

A new British memo asserts that "Mr Bush made it clear the US intended to invade whether or not there was a second resolution and even if UN inspectors found no evidence of a banned Iraqi weapons programme."

Look! Evidence Bush made up his mind early!!!

Except of ccourse, it does not say Bush said he would go to war no matter what. It says that Bush said he would not be deterred by the absence of a second resolution, or new WMD evidence.

And, of course, we already knew those things, at the time.

The Bush administration asserted many times -- from the day 1441 was passed, onward -- that they did not require a second resolution in order to act.

And the main point of 1441 was not to find actual WMD evidence, but to give Iraq a chance to cooperate -- immediately, and fully -- or not. Hussein chose not.

This is all well-known and well-documented. It was well-known at the time. It is not a new revelation.

What short memories some of these people have.
