Gakked from supergee this which in turn picks up on this. Now, there is an element of hesaid,shesaid in all of this, but short of active denial by Jacques Chirac that he told Romer or Maurice what these two quite reputable men say he told them, it really does seem that George W.Bush went into Iraq with apocalyptic missions in his head.

I don't want to swallow this story uncritically and am prepared to believe it is untrue, but it seems authentic enough to be worrying.

What particularly worries me about this is that if he said this to Chirac, he presumably also said it to eg Tony Blair, who, unlike Chirac, signed up for the whole thing. I do hope that the Chilcot enquiry presses him on this point, and asks him why he didn't tell Parliament about it.
