New York Times to release Bush/Blair memo tomorrow.
The memo, which was mentioned previously
, but never publically disclosed, confirms that George W. Bush and Tony Blair were determined to invade Iraq, regardless of UN approval, and despite what both leaders told their citizens. More troubling, the memo also indicates that Bush may have conspired to assassinate Saddam Hussein, which appears to violate Sec. 5g of Executive Order 11905
, which states that "No employee of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, political assassination." This executive order was considered the law of the land
even after 9/11, when Bob Barr proposed legislation H.R. 19
, which was never enacted into law.
