Getting very little news coverage in the United States is this document called the Downing Street Memo. The DSM is a secret British government document detailing information gleaned from the United States during meetings prior to the Iraq War.
The highlights include…
The minutes detail how our government did not believe Iraq was a greater threat than other nations; how intelligence was “fixed” to sell the case for war to the American public; and how the Bush Administration’s public assurances of “war as a last resort” were at odds with their privately stated intentions.
When asked, British officials “did not dispute the document’s authenticity.” and a senior American official has described it as “absolutely accurate.” Yet the Bush administration continues to simultaneously sidestep the issue while attempting to cast doubt on the memo’s authenticity.
Go check it out.
