    This story has the ring of truth. Everyone has been wondering why Blair was so willing to blindly support the US; a rash promise made in the emotional aftermath of 9/11 during a one-to-one meeting between Bush & Blair sounds about right, a promise which Blair shouldn't have made in the first place and didn't have the courage to retract later when faced with conflicting evidence and public & political opposition.

    If this bears out, it will show Blair to have made a catastrophically inept political judgment for which he should pay with his job, and which will go down in the history books as how not to conduct foreign policy.
