Downing Street Memo(s) The Smoking Gun

Have you heard of the Downing Street Memo? It is the notes of the former head of British Intelligence/MI-6 (equivalent of U.S. CIA) after meeting with U.S. counterparts. The notes were used in his briefing of PM Tony Blair and cabinet in July 2002 that Bush was determined to invade Iraq and was fixing intelligence around that policy! Read the memo here: http://www.downingstreetmemo.com/memo.html This past Thursday, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) held hearings on the memo. See the C-Span coverage here: http://www.c-span.org . Look for the video archives under Defense/Security.

You can take action to call for more investigation by Congress, more coverage by mainstream media, and for impeachment of the president for high crimes. Check out these actions and more at http://www.AfterDowningStreet.org
