Pre-Downing Evidence Piles Up

It's not bad enough that there's evidence in the "Downing Street" memo of six months of pre-determination for the undeclared war, but nine months. In other words, everything we heard out of the Bush and Blair administrations for almost a year (at least) before the shooting started was propogandistic maneuvering.

And yet, that time was not spent planning, mind you, or we wouldn't likely be in this mess we are in now.

I'm still waiting for the MSM to address this in a meaningful way. Even with a vote scheduled in Washington, I'm not seeing the press coverage I think this should receive.

Of course, the White House put out the word they didn't approve of the investigation. That probably explains a lot.

Given the cover-up implied by these memos, I'd think they'd smell the blood in the water. But... with Nixon the most important revelations came out of the Congressional hearings and the tapes: what're the odds of this Congress calling serious hearings on the Bush administration's Iraq War planning, much less pushing subpeonas and holding out the possibility of impeachment?
