There's More - The Downing Street Memo Has Brother And Sisters

According to the Times of London a new memo has surfaced detailing the need to make a legal case to fit the United States policy of war with Iraq.

Cabinet Office paper: Conditions for military action


Ministers were told of need for Gulf war ‘excuse’


"MINISTERS were warned in July 2002 that Britain was committed to taking part in an American-led invasion of Iraq and they had no choice but to find a way of making it legal.

The warning, in a leaked Cabinet Office briefing paper, said Tony Blair had already agreed to back military action to get rid of Saddam Hussein at a summit at the Texas ranch of President George W Bush three months earlier.



The briefing paper, for participants at a meeting of Blair’s inner circle on July 23, 2002, said that since regime change was illegal it was “necessary to create the conditions” which would make it legal."


Read Shakespeare's Sister's take on the memo:

Hot Damn


This issue is begining to get the recognition it deserves. I would like to take the time to thank some of those that made this happen.

John Conyers
Shakespeare's Sister
Randi Rhodes

These were the folks responsible for my first hearing about this. I am sure there are many others who deserve credit.
