Where are the defenders of the Iraq War now?
I remember those NZers who screamed that we should invade Iraq, I remember the lies spun to justify the unjustifiable. They tend to move on to Climate Denial now as their issue of the day, but I remember wading through the crap used to explain why the world needed to invade Iraq, they are quiet now as the level of out right deception is explored in the latest inquiry into the reasons why Britain went to war…
Blair's view on Iraq 'tightened' after Bush meeting
Tony Blair's view on regime change in Iraq "tightened" after a private meeting with President Bush in 2002, the UK's former US ambassador has said. Sir Christopher Meyer said no officials were at the Bush family ranch talks - but the next day Mr Blair mentioned regime change for the first time. The ex-diplomat also said officials had been left "scrabbling" for evidence of WMD as US troops prepared for invasion.
