Via The Guardian, Blair promised to be behind little king Georgie's excellent adventure before he'd gotten legal advice on the legality of the war, or a new UN resolution.
Tony Blair told President George Bush that he was "solidly" behind US plans to invade Iraq before he sought advice about the invasion's legality and despite the absence of a second UN resolution, according to a new account of the build-up to the war published today.
A memo of a two-hour meeting between the two leaders at the White House on January 31 2003 - nearly two months before the invasion - reveals that Mr Bush made it clear the US intended to invade whether or not there was a second UN resolution and even if UN inspectors found no evidence of a banned Iraqi weapons programme.
Note that bush made clear that he was invading whether or not there were WMDs found.
He lied to Congress, the american people, and the world.
