Iraq War - Blair's Deception Exposed
The BBC reported on December 12, 2009:
Former Prime Minister Tony Blair is facing strong criticism after he said he would have gone to war in Iraq even if he had known there were not any weapons of mass destruction.
The ex-director of public prosecutions has accused Tony Blair of "sycophancy" towards President Bush.
Sir Ken MacDonald called the 2003 Iraq war a "foreign policy disgrace of epic proportions".
He said the former prime minister had used "alarming subterfuge" to mislead the British people into the conflict.
Here in America, too, barring a few exceptions politicians of both parties meekly supported the war cooked up by Bush and the neocons.
