It's not exactly a news flash that the Bush Administration lied to the public before the invasion of Iraq.

What should be on front pages, though, is new proof of the Bush Administration's lies brought to light by the previously unknown Downing Street Minutes, recently obtained and printed in the Times of London. (The Downing Street Memo is a transcript of minutes of a secret meeting chaired by Tomy Blair in Britain in July of 2002 to discuss preparations and propaganda before going to war. It was marked "Secret and strictly personal--UK eyes only.")

Steve,
Nice job on CSPAN, actually also sent mail to Kevin with kudos,

Dear ....,The train is leaving the station..may be time to get on board.
There are thousands of us out here pecking away, pitching pebbles in
the pond and watching ripples spread. I think that may be a Tsunami

to slow the momentum of this Corporate War Machine, and sacrifices
will need to be made. We have to take back the Senate and the Congress in '06 and if some people's reputations are tarnished,
or their hopes and aspirations dashed, well - que sera, welcome to the
club, many of us out here are only to familiar with that reality, have been
so for to long. It's time to take a stand, to stand up, to speak up and keep
the pressure up unti we take back the Peoples Houses. Sincerely,
Patrick Monk.RN. San Francisco.
