DOWNING STREET MEMO UPDATE….The Washington Post has finally run a story about the leaked British memo confirming that by summer 2002 (a) war with Iraq was a foregone conclusion and (b) intelligence was being actively manipulated to fit the desired policy. A thousand words on page 18. Yawn.

The LA Times did a little better: their Thursday story ran on page 3.

Michigan Congressman John Conyers is still trying to drum up more attention for this, but he’s finding it tough going. I can only assume that everyone concluded long ago that of course the Bushies lied about the war and further evidence is just another dog-bites-man story. Sadly, it’s hard to argue with that.
