GWB's Speedy G8 Departure

[GWB's Speedy G8 Departure]

Dubya left the G8 early. Wonder whether the Blix report had anything to do with it. Notable:
At the G8 summit in Evian, Tony Blair, the UK prime minister, was forced to deflect suggestions by a former cabinet minister that he had decided last September to go to war with Iraq, whether or not United Nations support was forthcoming.

"The idea . . . that I made some secret agreement with George Bush last September that we would invade Iraq in any event at a particular time is completely and totally untrue," he said.
Yeah. They probably decided in August.
