From 1997 to 2003, Christopher Meyer was Britain's ambassador to the United States. It's a stint he has written about in a memoir called DC Confidential:The Controversial Memoirs of Britain's Ambassador to the U.S. at the Time of 9-11 and the Iraq War.

The last two years of Meyer's posting to Washington was marked by the run-up to war in Iraq, in which Meyer's boss, Prime Minister Tony Blair, was a key U.S. ally.
