    Has anyone seen the leaked transcript of a senior British government meeting?

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...593607,00.html

    Key quotes:

    "C reported on his recent talks in Washington. There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable. 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. The NSC had no patience with the UN route, and no enthusiasm for publishing material on the Iraqi regime's record. There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action."
    (emphasis mine)

    "The Attorney-General said that the desire for regime change was not a legal base for military action."

    "Saddam was not threatening his neighbours, and his WMD capability was less than that of Libya, North Korea or Iran."
    "Wounds are all I'm made of. Did I hear you say that this is victory?"
    --Michael Moorcock, Veteran of the Psychic Wars
