"I'm Going to Invade Iraq" :: www.uruknet.info :: informazione dall'Iraq occupato :: news from occupied Iraq :: - it June 2, 2009 Two years before the 9/11 attacks on America, George W. Bush told a Houston journalist if elected president, "Iâ€™m going to invade Iraq." Bush made the comments about starting an aggressive war to veteran Houston Chronicle reporter Mickey Herskowitz, then working with Bush on his book "A Charge To Keep," later brought out by publisher William Morrow. This disclosure was uncovered by Russ Baker, an award-winning investigative reporter when he interviewed Herskowitz for his own book, "Family of Secrets" (Bloomsbury Press) about the Bush dynasty. However, Baker says, when he approached The Washington Post and The Los Angeles Times with the potentially devastating story to President Bush prior to the 2004 presidential election, they declined to publish it.
