Call me cynical - no, really - but is anyone interested any more?

Isn't it obvious the war was planned, prosecuted on the basis of lies, managed disastrously, and has become a total failure in every possible way (except human sacrifice and corporate profit)?

The only possible place where this could get leverage would be in the US.

Considering that the Downing Street memo disappeared with barely a ripple, I'm not seeing how this is going to change anyone's mind about anything - except possibly as a document of historical interest.

Bush lies. He causes people to die. He hands over government money to corporate cronies. He believes mad things.

That's who he is and what he does, and he's absolutely consistent about it.

Yet more evidence to prove this fact is interesting, but there's already a steaming great mountain of it.

The people who should care, clearly don't. And they already know the facts. So I don't think they're likely to have a road-to-Damascus experience because of something like this.

What could be interesting is to collect all of the facts together into a book and publish it in the US. It probably still wouldn't make any difference, but it would be useful and interesting to have as much of the story as is on the record collected in one place, joining the dots together.
