[100 word news] – Blair responds to Chilcot comments: ‘There was no falsifying of the intelligence’

Tony Blair has responded to comments made by Sir John Chilcot which suggested the former Prime Minister had not been ‘straight with the nation’ over the decision to invade Iraq.

A spokesman for Mr. Blair accused the BBC, who interviewed Mr. Chilcot, of ‘putting words into John Chilcot’s mouth’.

‘A full reading of the interview shows that Sir John makes it clear that Mr. Blair had not ‘departed from the truth’.

‘Five different inquiries have all shown the same thing: that there was no falsifying of the intelligence’.

Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn reacted to these comments, saying:

‘The case against the Iraq War is a very strong one. We have got to think very carefully as a country about what has happened since the Iraq War, and the consequences that flowed from what I believe was a catastrophically wrong decision in 2003’.

  1. Tony Blair has a good pair of eyes and above average cognitive abilities. His incredulous testimony since 911 is proven beyond doubt in the context of what everyone on the planet saw with their own eyes on 911.
    911 was a false pretext for war. Yet this intelligent man refused to see the reality and instead chose to become an accessory to genocide.
    Guilty Your Honour.
