The Dodgiest Dossier
Essential reading as the Chilcot Inquiry into the war on Iraq begins its public hearings in London, 24 November.
These key secret documents include the notorious Downing Street Memo of July 2002, which recorded the candid assessment of the head of MI6, in the presence of Prime Minister Blair, that in the United States 'the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy'. The documents were leaked in 2005, during the run-up to the General Election of that year. Their authors are amongst the first witnesses to be called by the Inquiry.
A useful and informative independent commentary on the Iraq Inquiry is available online (www.iraqinquirydigest.org).
