Finally read The Downing Street Memo first reported by the Times of London May 1, 2005.

I'm embarrassed to have waited so long to read it -- I guess I thought it was going to be a longish document. Turns out it really is a memo -- notes from a meeting on July 23, 2002 outlining U.S. administration plans to go to war in Iraq saying: "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy." and "There was little discussion in Washington of the aftermath after military action."

There have been, as far as I can find, no refutations of the memo to date.

Is it just me or is that a smoking gun?

And if it is a smoking gun, who's going to remove it from the hands of the shooter?
