An interesting news piece

On May 5, 2005 John Conyers and 88 members of US Congress wrote an open letter to the White House inquiring about the new documents leaked which revealed the secret agreement between the United States and the United Kingdom to attack Iraq in 2002. The London Times reported newly-discovered documents reveal British and U.S. intentions to invade Iraq and had "discussed creating pretextual justifications for doing so". The documents go on to say that Blair decided the U.S. would need to "create" conditions to justify the war.
The 88 members of Congress, headed by Representative Conyers, say they seek an inquiry into the matter. The story broke in the United Kingdom, but has not received much coverage in the United States, prompting Conyers to lament "This should not be allowed to fall down the memory hole during wall-to-wall coverage of the Michael Jackson trial and a runaway bride."
