The Downing Street Memo, a record of minutes from a July 23, 2002, meeting between British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his senior ministers, was published in the Sunday Times (London) on May 1, 2005. It “revealed that, following 9/11, members of the Bush administration ‘wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD.’ The memo goes on to recount that ‘the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.’ ”
