Wishes He Could Have Read It in the 'Chronicle' but Didn't
RECEIVED Thu., May 19, 2005
Dear Editor, Intellectually I understand why the leaked British memo failed to even register on the American collective consciousness, but then our Congress-critters wrote an official letter to Bush asking for an explanation (www.house.gov/judiciary_democrats/letters/bushsecretmemoltr5505.pdf) and still, nothing. I wrote Lloyd Doggett to thank him for signing the letter; he wanted to know where I had heard about it. Wish I could have said, "I read it in the Chronicle."
[Editor's note: The congressional letter, signed by Lloyd Doggett, et al., is available at the link cited by Chris Judge. The "leaked British memo" itself, with useful commentary, is available at the Web site of University of Michigan professor Juan Cole, www.juancole.com/2005/05/secret-british-memo-shows-bush.html.]
