From the Observer: “President George Bush first asked Tony Blair to support the removal of Saddam Hussein from power at a private White House dinner nine days after the terror attacks of 11 September, 2001.” Forget the other details of the Clarke book. Forget the 9-11 commission’s finding that 9-11 could’ve (with hindsight and in a perfect world) been prevented. This is the story.
