Just last week, President Bush and Blair vigorously denied that war was inevitable.
"No, the facts were not being fixed, in any shape or form at all," said Blair at a White House news conference with the president on June 7.
But now, war critics have come up with seven more memos, verified by NBC News.
These are the same docs talked about all weekend (available from last fall I believe) but not brought into the spotlight until the release of the DSM. If I am wrong, please let me know
Now we have a major network news org vouching for their authenticity, if I am to understand this correctly... can you all go over, read this and return with your impressions?
As said in an email to me a minute ago, "What's verified? The documents, or the fact that war critics have come up with them? Or does it mean the same thing?"

I have been wanting to begin a push to reopen the stalled Senate Intelligence committee's hearings on the use of available intelligence leading up to the war... now may be the time to start that effort. What are the thoughts on that around here?
And just to fit in...
BREAKING!! I am not much of a diarist (no kidding :-)
And just for the record, Georgia10 emailed me about this before she signed off for the evening... so it is really her find. I just happen to be in a different time zone. That is too bad, as you all would have gotten a better diary out of her :-D
