Anti-war activists press for release of Iraq documents
Saturday 9th November 2013
Peace campaigners scold David Cameron
Sir John Chilcot has made 10 requests for access to the classified information in order to conclude his inquiry into [the] 2003 attack and publish a report.
Details of around 200 cabinet discussions and 25 notes from Mr Blair to Mr Bush are also included in the documents.
Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament leader Kate Hudson accused the government of driving the inquiry from the long grass and “into the woods.”
“To say these conversations are ‘central’ to the inquiry is an understatement – they are crucial to understanding the path to war, including if Blair guaranteed unconditional UK support for an illegal invasion.”
He added: “The Iraq adventure is one of the most serious failures of government policy in the last 50 years.”
