More on who knew what and when...

Congressman John Conyers (D-MI), obviously a regular reader of the Brain, is circulating a letter calling for a further inquiry into a secret U.S.-UK agreement to attack Iraq, no doubt due to recognizing the geschmokinge pistole (Damn! F-Man's got me brain-fartin' in Deutsche today) found in my posts here and here. From Raw Story.
In a statement, Conyers says he is disappointed the mainstream media has not touched the revelations.

"Unfortunately, the mainstream media in the United States was too busy with wall-to-wall coverage of a "runaway bride" to cover a bombshell report out of the British newspapers."

Dear Mr. President:

We write because of troubling revelations in the Sunday London Times apparently confirming that the United States and Great Britain had secretly agreed to attack Iraq in the summer of 2002, well before the invasion and before you even sought Congressional authority to engage in military action. While various individuals have asserted this to be the case before, including Paul O'Neill, former U.S. Treasury Secretary, and Richard Clarke, a former National Security Council official, they have been previously dismissed by your Administration. However, when this story was divulged last weekend, Prime Minister Blair's representative claimed the document contained "nothing new." If the disclosure is accurate, it raises troubling new questions regarding the legal justifications for the war as well as the integrity of your own Administration.

The integrity of your own Administration. Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! Yo, Johnny! That's a good one! Ha!

It's a good letter. Mr. Conyers asks direct questions, not that we're likely to get direct answers. Please go read it for yourself. This deal is far from over.
