65. and the WH still has not responded (per Conyers via Mpls Star)
ignore and ignore some more--in hopes the story will fade away is the strategy (they may be right!! except McCain has put his 2cents in--denying the story--which i hope will stir up the soap a bit)--see line above for story.

A Cold War-era spy story

The Bush administration has not responded to the Democrats' inquiry, said Michigan Rep. John Conyers Jr., who initiated the request. The White House and the National Security Council also did not respond to the Star Tribune's requests for comment.

Although this latest divisive war news raced worldwide via the modern blogosphere, it surfaced like a Cold War-era spy story replete with code names and spilled secrets.

On May 1, the Sunday Times of London published what it said was a secret summary of a meeting Prime Minister Tony Blair and his top advisers held in his Downing Street offices on July 23, 2002, eight months before the invasion of Iraq.

Labeled "extremely sensitive," the memo says Blair and others were briefed by "C," (standard code for the head of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service who, at the time, was Sir Richard Dearlove). C had just returned from Washington, D.C., and the memo recapped his assessment: "Military action was now seen as inevitable. Bush wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD (weapons of mass destruction). But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy. ... There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action.".........
