Staggering/Damning

Perhaps most revealing about today’s posting on the National Security Archive’s Web site is what is missing—any indication whatsoever from the declassified record to date that top Bush administration officials seriously considered an alternative to war. In contrast there is an extensive record of efforts to energize military planning, revise existing contingency plans, and create a new, streamlined war plan.

As if it’s needed, more support for the supposition—and by that I mean “fact”—that George W. Bush took his oath knowing he was going to find a way to go to war with Iraq.
