Late to the discussion, with just smoke

Ron Lowe, one of the usual suspects, writes "Downing St. memo the smoking gun?", June 11, 2005
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice: "This war came to us, not the other way around." That's not the way it was. Showing up the lies, a Downing Street memo points out that intelligence and facts were fixed and spun to warrant military action in Iraq. The President and America are now reaping the results of this deceit, with U.S. soldiers and Iraqis paying the ultimate price.
Mr. Lowe is a little late to the discussion. See the Union Blog, where Anna has posted a link to the memo. See post number 4 (here). While you are there click on the other links. My favorite is the National Review Online discussion (here).

Remember, the Brits and US remained engaged in Iraq since the first Gulf War, enforcing the no fly zones. Read the Memo.

Yes, the leftie blogs are trying to turn this memo in to a smoking gun. But , it just a memo by an aide of what he thought other players said. At best it is an imaginary gun and some smoke.
