  1. Alright chaps,

    at the expense of sounding stupid...are the Butler and Hutton Inquires linked, if so how? I know Hutton largely cleared the gov of wrong doings with regards to "sexing up" the Sept Dossier and Butler a year later concluded that the intelligence to go to war with Iraq was unreliable, but doesn't that mean Butler clashes with Hutton?

    Im confused, thanks.
  2. I think I got it...although Butler says the evidence the gov used to justify war with Iraq was unreliable, it essentially says some of the gov claims were however credible, such as Iraq seeking uranium from Niger, and that there was no evidence for deliberate distortion or negligence with regards to the JIC.

    Clearing that up for myself I guess
