I don't know who had the greater desire to go to Iraq. Either way, it looks like Blair was blackmailed into it, which had him begging for Bush to put up the muscle. Or maybe Bush (by 'Bush', I mean his staff/handlers) was doing the blackmailing. Hard to tell, but there is a story here, in addition to the phone hacking scandal, that makes the NSA thing look like just another day at the office. His whole attitude about the war is so much more understandable now. Is this what they meant by 'sex up the intelligence'? A DNA test will go a long way into settling this.
