    The Downing Street memo is highly questionable. However, even taken as rock-solid, it goes back to 2002. Again, post-9/11.

    Granted, and so corrected.

    Actually, you were correct in your first thought. Bush told his plans to invade Iraq to a biographer when he was still on the campaign trail in 1999.

    Invading Iraq was going to give him the respect his father always had but, he didn't. Poor little Richie Rich bombed again.

    Two years before 9/11, candidate Bush was already talking privately about attacking Iraq, according to his former ghost writer
    Houston: Two years before the September 11 attacks, presidential candidate George W. Bush was already talking privately about the political benefits of attacking Iraq, according to his former ghost writer, who held many conversations with then-Texas Governor Bush in preparation for a planned autobiography.

    He was thinking about invading Iraq in 1999,” said author and journalist Mickey Herskowitz. “It was on his mind. He said to me: ‘One of the keys to being seen as a great leader is to be seen as a commander-in-chief.’ And he said, ‘My father had all this political capital built up when he drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait and he wasted it.’ He said, ‘If I have a chance to invade….if I had that much capital, I’m not going to waste it. I’m going to get everything passed that I want to get passed and I’m going to have a successful presidency.”
    Exclusive: Bush Wanted To Invade Iraq If Elected in 2000

    Don't let these yahoos make you think your initial thoughts about Bush are ever wrong.

    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Someone a little more honest and a little less partisan might take "talking about invading" and "thinking about invading" and invading beng "on his mind" -- in the context that the statemenst were made -- as something less than "planning to invade", as is having made the decision to do so.

    Keep swinging for the seats, slugger...

    Good grief, dude. Is there no barrel whose bottom you won't scrape on your fishing trip for self-validation?

    Why didn't Herskowitz see fit to mention this any time prior? He was on the campaign trail with the Bush's through most of 1999. He was let go for wanting to spice things up. Salon Books | Bush campaign cans biographer Seems like THEN was the time to mention it.

    So why only years after when he saw others raking in pots of gold for this sort of thing did he come forward, and why do you have to go to places like the "Guerrilla News Network" to find it?

    What would you like, drawn up plans with maps and pictures? His intent and desire is as plain as Cheney going thru the DT's from lack of control.

    Would pretty much make yours a slam-dunk case, wouldn't it?

    I mean, if you're actually interested in "truth," and all that.

    Gee, that's a real fine question thar dude. Why don't you research it and get back to us?

    Herskowitz was let go because Bush's handlers didn't like what he was writing down. You know, he was writing down what was actually happening and being said. They wanted something that made Bush look good.

    If you actually understood what I was writing, I allowed for that. In fact, it figures into my question . . .

    Why did it then take him FIVE YEARS to come forward with that little tidbit? Seemed relevant a . . . bit sooner than that.
