The Memo

"The minutes also recount a visit to Washington by Richard Dearlove, the head of the British intelligence service MI6: "There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.""

Yeah. Not surprised at all, but I don't really see this as damning per se. We knew they were fixing the facts and didn't fully know what the intelligence was. There's more than enough wiggle room here for Bush to skate away. His followers believe on a etherial level. They don't care about facts. Neither does he.
