Iraq Inquiry Coverage Rebuttal Service, resumed
Once again I gently remind people that Tony Blair could not have “committed” the UK to military action before the decision of the Cabinet and the vote in Parliament. Nor was his support for the use of force if necessary a secret.
And nor, to rebut a second story in The Independent, did he withhold information from a Cabinet that would otherwise have failed to support him.
The great wave of secondary recycling of antiwar myth has already started, with Iraq Inquiry Digest – describing the BBC as “an organ of the state” – heading the first instalment with a Question To Which For Far Too Many People The Answer Is Always Yes: “Is the US to blame?”
Time to get out the old logo again.chilcot, iraq, iraq inquiry, iraq war
