The Downing Street Memo--the minutes of a high-level meeting with Tony Blair and his war cabinet in July 2002, in which the British intelligence chief reports that the Bush administration had decided on war with Iraq and that "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy"--was seen by many as proof that the Bush administration (and their British enablers) lied about the weapons threat posed by Saddam Hussein and lied about their intentions to resolve the matter diplomatically before going to war. Although it caused an enormous furor in Britain, it was largely ignored in the American press, much to the dismay of Danner (a longtime staff writer at The New Yorker), who managed to get it published in The New York Review of Books, along with an essay explaining its import. The essay prompted responses from a leading Knight-Ridder reporter and from Washington Post columnist Michael Kinsley, which in turn generated response essays from Danner. This correspondence is republished here, along with the Downing Street Memo and other government documents providing evidence on the ginned-up nature of the case for war.
