The Smoking Cannon - Downing Street Docs pile up

This just in from BuzzFlash. The Times of London reports on yet another leaked document, this time it's a Cabinet Office briefing paper, in which the Ministers were warned that the US was going into Iraq and the UK was going to be standing ankle deep in complicity when the shit hit the fan.
The warning, in a leaked Cabinet Office briefing paper, said Tony Blair had already agreed to back military action to get rid of Saddam Hussein at a summit at the Texas ranch of President George W Bush three months earlier.

The briefing paper, for participants at a meeting of Blair’s inner circle on July 23, 2002, said that since regime change was illegal it was “necessary to create the conditions” which would make it legal.
Meanwhile, John Conyers letter asking for accountability has 500,000 signatures on it and is expected to have as many as one million by the time he presents it to Bush. It's going to be a hell of a hearing on Thursday and this should also give the Resolution sponsored by After Downing Street some added steam.
