1. IAWM PR ON CHILCOT REPORT
• IAWM WELCOMES CHILCOT REPORT ON IRAQ WAR
• REPORT AN INDICTMENT OF TONY BLAIR’S RUSH TO WAR IN IRAQ
• SHOWS THAT BLAIR MISLED CABINET, PARLIAMENT AND THE BRITISH PEOPLE
• CHILCOT MUST LEAD TO JUSTICE FOR IRAQIS AND UK MILITARY FAMILIES

The IAWM welcomes the publication of the long awaited Chilcot Inquiry and the fact that it is a serious indictment of Tony Blair’s role in Britain’s involvement in the invasion and occupation of Iraq and the subsequent sectarian blood letting.

The report finds unequivocally among other issues that Tony Blair “deliberately exaggerated the threat posed by Sadaam Hussein”, that “there was no immInent threat from Saddam” and that “Britain’s intelligence agencies produced ‘flawed information’”. It also highlights that Blair “ignored warnings on what would happen in Iraq after invasion” and that it had “no post invasion strategy”.

Tony Blair and Foreign Minister Jack Straw consistently misled the British Parliament and distorted the work of the UN and weapons inspectors despite the very clear assurances from inspectors such as Mohammed El Baradei of the International Atomic Agency who said that there was “no evidence of prohibited weapons programmes” and of Hans Blix, the leader of the UN inspection team, who “found no evidence of plausible indication of the revival of a nuclear weapons programme in Iraq”.

We can all remember the scaremongering of the 40-minute timescale in which Sadaam could launch one of these imaginary WMDs. In a disgraceful act of subterfuge Blair also distorted the intelligence when he omitted the qualifications noted by Britain’s Joint Intelligence Committee.
