Are the US and UK blocking publication of the Iraq Inquiry report because it includes documents that prove the secret conspiracy between George Bush and Tony Blair to wage an illegal war? Lindsey German, convenor of Stop the War Coalition, says there’s something very suspicious going on.
From daily The Independent in Britain today:
Tony Blair said he would support the US if military action was needed in Iraq, the then-US Secretary of State claimed in a memo written a year before the war began.
The document was obtained by The Mail on Sunday as part of a batch of emails on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, which US courts forced her to reveal. It was written a week before Mr Blair‘s meeting with Mr Bush at his Crawford ranch in Texas. …
During his appearance before the Chilcot inquiry in January 2010, he denied he had struck a secret deal with Mr Bush at Crawford to overthrow Saddam Hussein.
Mr Blair said the two men had agreed on the need to confront the Iraqi dictator, but insisted they did not get into “specifics”.
“The position was not a covert position, it was an open position,” he said.
“This isn’t about a lie or a conspiracy or a deceit or a deception. It’s a decision.
“What I was saying… was ‘We are going to be with you in confronting and dealing with this threat’.”
There is no doubt about it: Tony Blair was on the warpath from early 2002. Colin Powell’s memo confirms what is broadly known, but will add to pressure on Chilcot inquiry to clear up controversy over PM in run-up to invasion of Iraq: here.
