This is pretty fucked up

Head on over to Shakespeare's Sister, where she has a post about Bush's hypocritial stance on the death penalty/stem cell research. However, possibly the more interesting part of the post is at the end where she points out a pretty fucked up revelation associated with the Downing Street Memo:

On a semi-related warmongering-type note, in case you’ve not heard, one of the revelations associated with the release of the Downing Street Memo is that Tony Blair only agreed to support the Iraq War in exchange for Bush supporting the Afghanistan invasion.

Think about that for a moment.

Bush had to be convinced to go after al-Qaida. Blair agreed to go into Iraq to get us into Afghanistan.

Digby says:
Tony Blair had to make a deal with Bush that he'd support him on Iraq to get him to go after Al-Qaeda. Is there anything more pathetic --- and frightening --- than that?
I’d have to say no.

In the comments on that thread, people are organizing some kind of mass post to draw attention to this completely fucked up revelation, since we know it will be largely ignored by the media. Go check it out if you want to participate.
