Yes, Prime Minister: The Downing Street Memo

The "Downing Street Memo" is correctly portrayed as a smoking gun from the British Government of Tony Blair showing that Bush took us into an ILLEGAL war based on intentionally distorted intelligence:

"Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy... It seemed clear that Bush had made up his mind to take military action, even if the timing was not yet decided. But the case was thin. Saddam was not threatening his neighbours, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran... The Attorney-General said that the desire for regime change was not a legal base for military action."

The media, which is now uniformly conservative in the U.S., is refusing to air the facts of the D.S.M. which show that Bush's ongoing war crimes are criminal under international law in addition to being morally reprehensible.

Once upon a time the media was more unbiased. The right-wing wackos screamed that they were liberal which had the chilling effect of shutting down the truth. You can use this link to find info to contact media outlets to demand that they report the Downing Street Memo:
