Prime Minister Tony Blair-s Visit to Camp David

Hosted by
The British media call today-s White House meeting a -council of war,- a perception that could prove politically costly for Prime Minister Tony Blair. Polls show that 85% of the British oppose war in Iraq without another Security Council Resolution. Blair-s own Labor Party is sharply divided, and even some of the Tories are restless. Critics are calling Blair America-s -poodle,- but supporters say he-s a man of conviction who can restrain a trigger-happy Texas -cowboy.- Why has Blair chosen to take Great Britain into what many of his own people call -America-s war?- We hear conflicting voices from across the Atlantic, including journalists from the Independent, Daily Telegraph, and Weekly Standard, as well as a US and British trade advisor, and members of Britain-s Labor and Liberal Democratic Parties.
