And This Is News Because?

Over at Salon, Juan Cole waves a placard that says, “They lied! they lied!”

And we now know, thanks to a leaked British memo concerning the head of British intelligence, that the Bush administration — contrary to its explicit denials — had already made up its mind to attack Iraq and “fixed” those bogus allegations to support its decision. In short, Bush and his top officials lied about Iraq.

Seriously, was there any serious doubt even in March 2003? I suppose this is interesting only to those who had their hands over their eyes and kept asking for a smoking gun. Can you breathe now, with all that smoke?
