Standing alongside Blair, Bush also defended a stance on global warming that is at odds with the views of the British and many other American allies.

Questioned by a reporter, Bush for the first time addressed a 2002 memo suggesting that the United States bent intelligence to justify a decision to invade Iraq and sought British cooperation.

"There's nothing farther from the truth," Bush said. "Both of us didn't want to use our military. It was our last option."

Said Blair: "The facts were not being fixed in any shape or form at all."
