Chilcot: Iraq Military Action ‘Not Last Resort’...

Sky News

British forces were committed to invading Iraq “before the peaceful options for disarmament had been exhausted”, Sir John Chilcot has said.
He said the legal basis for UK military action in Iraq was “far from satisfactory”, and the severity of the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction “were presented with a certainty that was not justified” by Tony Blair’s government.
Mr Blair “overestimated his ability to influence US decisions in Iraq”, and the consequences of the 2003 invasion were underestimated “despite explicit warnings”.
Sir John said the planning and preparation for the period after Saddam Hussein’s fall was “wholly inadequate”.
