When was the decision to make war made?

CNN apparently needs a better proofreader for their homepage. I was surprised to see a link that read "White House refutes UK Iraq memo," that lead to this article, where Scott McClellan is quoted as making some vague, nonspecific denials about the timeline of the decision to invade Iraq.

Note to CNN: "refute" means "disprove" not "deny." The White House hasn't disproved anything. In fact, it hasn't even denied anything exactly. Even John McCain, sent to the Sunday talk shows to defend the administration, didn't exactly deny the question of the timeline for war, rather suggesting that he didn't "agree with" the memo's suggestions.

Fox News, of course, isn't even bothering to cover this story.
