The Downing Street Memo

What a load of rubbish. Further commentary is unwarranted for an impression of a feeling of a sense of what was transpiring, especially one so pregnant with misunderstanding of non-American English. Having led a deployment to England for a year, one of my biggest problems was explaining to management that we didn't exactly speak the same language.

Bugger all.

The SFO editorial reads:

"But it is important to note that no one has challenged the authenticity of the memo nor the accuracy of its account of the meeting.

"Bush also scoffed at the suggestion that the decision to go to war had been made by July 2002, nearly a year before U.S. bombs began raining on Baghdad. 'There's nothing farther from the truth,' Bush told reporters. 'My conversation with the prime minister was, how can we do this peacefully?'"

Isn't that challenging the accuracy of the account?
