A freshly leaked memo reveals that Bush was planning to invade Iraq very early on, in the summer of 2002, and was working with British Prime Minister Tony Blair to create an excuse for the war. An article in The Independent reveals the details. Excerpt:

Tony Blair had resolved to send British troops into action alongside US forces eight months before the Iraq War began, despite a clear warning from the Foreign Office that the conflict could be illegal.

A damning minute leaked to a Sunday newspaper reveals that in July 2002, a few weeks after meeting George Bush at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, Mr. Blair summoned his closest aides for what amounted to a council of war. The minute reveals the head of British intelligence reported that President Bush had firmly made up his mind to invade Iraq and overthrow Saddam Hussein, adding that "the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy".

I note that this story is getting very little play in the American media. But then, we should be used to that, shouldn't we?
