Now the lies surface
Tens of thousands of secret documents could contradict evidence given by key members of the Blair government to the Iraq inquiry, its chairman Sir John Chilcot has suggested.
He also said the inquiry would look to visit Iraq and quiz key members of the Bush administration and Iraq veterans later this year. Possible witnesses could include Colin Powell, the former US secretary of state.
Sir John was speaking after a second questioning session with Jack Straw, the-then foreign secretary and now Justice secretary.
Sir Lawrence Freedman, a panel member, hinted that documents seen by the inquiry – but not made public – showed George W Bush planned to attack Iraq even if UN weapons inspector Hans Blix said Saddam Hussein was complying with resolution 1441. </em>
