Secret Way to War: The Downing Street Memo and the Iraq War’s Buried History
Mark Danner (au); Frank rich (pf)
The U.S. went to war in Iraq in March 2003 in the cause of eliminating the threat from Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction -- which turned out not to exist. Here, Danner examines the record of decision-making revealed by the so-called Downing Street documents that offer an inside view of members of Tony Blair’s government, and their American counterparts, as they struggle to come up with legal and political rationales for invading Iraq. These documents prove that President Bush had decided on war 8 months before invading, and only later chose to use the supposed threat from Saddam’s weapons of mass destruction to justify it. All that was left was to “fix” the “intelligence and facts around the policy”.
