Path to War Timeline
There are a bunch of documents on Raw Story as well.
One is "penned by the British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw--the U.S. equivalent of Secretary of State--on Mar. 25, 2002 concerning a looming war in Iraq. Straw indicates the case for war is weak [and] that the Iraq situation has remained unchanged..." The text is taken from a .pdf and it can be found here.
This memorandum, written by Blair political director Peter Ricketts and dated Mar. 22, 2002, indicates the challenges an Iraq war would face. "The truth is that what has changed is not the pace of Saddam Hussein’s WMD programmes," the document says.
Several other documents are listed on Raw Story's main page but I don't know how long they will be there.
