The new-documents released by the Iraq war Inquiry has confirmed that Tony Blair and his communications advisor Alistair Campbell made up a pack of lies to involve Britain in an illegal war.
Following the revelation of the top military intelligence official, Michael Laurie, that Iraq dossier was written to make case of war, analysts said that the Iraq Inquiry is aimed at finding errors which have been made by the UK officials in invading to Iraq, has been leading depressing affair.
They believed that the Chilcot Inquiry into Iraq war has already cost millions of pounds, and lasted for two years and exactly when the key witnesses stood at the Inquiry to give evidence on the disastrous Iraq War, the inquiry officials started asking imprecise and inadequate questions.
The devastating evidence by Major General Michael Laurie proves that Tony Blair and Alastair Campbell were slippery, unashamed and able to mislead not only the Inquiry but the families of about 200 British soldiers who laid down their lives in this illegal bloody war.
In a statement published on Iraq Inquiry website, General Michael Laurie who was in charge of commanding and delivering raw and analyzed intelligence, said, "I am writing to comment on the position taken by Alastair Campbell during his evidence to you … when he stated that the purpose of the dossier was not to make a case for war; I and those involved in its production saw it exactly as that, and that was the direction we were given."
The evidence openly contradicted the claims of the former government about the dossier and perhaps more considerably, what the former Prime Minister Tony Blair and Campbell said at the time it was published right seven months before the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
Laurie said he could remember that the chief of defense intelligence, Air Marshal Sir Joe French, was "frequently inquiring whether we were missing something" and was under pressure.
"We could find no evidence of planes, missiles or equipment that related to WMD [weapons of mass destruction], generally concluding that they must have been dismantled, buried or taken abroad. There has probably never been a greater detailed scrutiny of every piece of ground in any country."
Despite the uncovered lies, the treachery and corruption, the increasing violence of the state, the broken promises, breaking the law and order, collapse of the economy, there still remains a group of loyalists who have closed their eyes and speak sweetly of the so-called warmonger.
