    Well, even if he did, we wouldn't hear about it since he has the media in his back pocket. For example, the Bush admin's version of the Watergate Tapes would be the Downing Street Memo. You'll note that nothing came of that piece of highly-incriminating evidence. Here are some poignant excerpts from the memo (emphasis in boldface is mine):

    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...

    The Defence Secretary... thought the most likely timing in US minds for military action to begin was January, with the timeline beginning 30 days before the US Congressional elections.

    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.
    I encourage you to read the memo. The only explanation as to why this didn't become a huge issue is that the Bush administration supressed it in the main-stream media and continues to do so!
