British general’s memoirs hit Blair government on military policy

17 September 2010

The former head of the British Army, General Sir Richard Dannatt, has made his most strident criticisms to date of the governments of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown on the issue of military deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan in his recently published memoirs.

Dannatt has made the claims and accusations in his book, Leading from the Front, which is being serialised this month in the Sunday Telegraph.

Dannatt said evidence for Iraq’s possession of weapons of mass destruction, which was the justification for Britain’s involvement in the illegal US-led 2003 invasion of the country, was “most uncompelling” and the planning for the aftermath of war an “abject failure”.

A prominent Australian war correspondent has revealed the news giant CNN refused to air footage of an apparent war crime by US troops in Iraq. In an interview with the Australian network ABC, Michael Ware says he witnessed a US soldier fatally shooting an Iraqi teenager in the back of the head. The boy then lay dying for twenty minutes. Ware says CNN decided the footage was too graphic for broadcast. He’s been unable to release it because CNN owns the tapes: here.
