KR Washington Bureau | 05/05/2005 | British memo indicates Bush made intelligence fit Iraq policy: “The document, which summarizes a July 23, 2002, meeting of British Prime Minister Tony Blair with his top security advisers, reports on a visit to Washington by the head of Britain’s MI-6 intelligence service.

The visit took place while the Bush administration was still declaring to the American public that no decision had been made to go to war.

‘There was a perceptible shift in attitude. Military action was now seen as inevitable,’ the MI-6 chief said at the meeting, according to the memo. ‘Bush wanted to remove Saddam through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD,’ weapons of mass destruction.

The memo said ‘the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.’ “
