Memo Contains Evidence Of Bush/Blair Iraq ‘Manipulative’ Invasion Planning

June 22, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – A memo that has been discovered and read by The Observer has found that back in 2003, George Bush and Tony Blair held a secret meeting in which the discussed plans that would solidify an invasion in Iraq.

These plans included finding someone who could be manipulated into saying that the country held WMD’s despite both men knowing that none would be found, flying reconnaissance aircraft over Iraq sporting UN colors in the hopes that they would be shot down, and an assassination of then leader Saddam Hussein. He also made it clear that even without UN support, the US planned to invade.

Blair, for his part, was reported as saying he was “solidly with the president”, The Guardian reports, and that support from the UK would be given in the time of military invasion.

The document filled five pages, and was written and copied by Sir David Manning, then Blair’s foreign policy advisor, and given to a handful of UK advisers to the UN and Washington.

In this meeting the date to begin the war was also ‘penciled in 10 March’, the date that Bush had set for the first bombs to be dropped in Baghdad.

The article originally posted in the Observer urges transparency on the memo, in order to alert the people of both the UK and US of the manipulative action taken in the war.
