More “Downings Street Memos”

Newsday has the AP story: Newsday.com: Memos show U.S. push for war, describing another six unvarnished pre-invasion memos now leaked from the UK.

Money quote is from Toby Dodge, identified as an Iraq expert who teaches at Queen Mary College, University of London:

Dodge said the memos also confirm that “soon after 9/11 happened, the starting gun was fired for the invasion of Iraq.”

Even though, as UK Foreign Minister Jack Straw then wrote, “there has been no credible evidence to link Iraq with OBL [Osama bin Laden] and al-Qaida.”
