Nine days after 9/11, Bush told Blair we would attack Iraq

It was September 20, 2001. The airports had just reopened. We had not yet fought the Afghanistan war to uproot al Qaeda. And George W. Bush was already telling Tony Blair, at a private White House dinner, of our intention to attack Iraq.

This is according to Sir Christopher Meyer, the former British Ambassador to Washington, who was at the dinner when Blair became the first foreign leader to visit America 9/11.

An interview with Meyer will be published in the May issue of Vanity Fair.
