Mirror: Tensions between allies rise to fever pitch


A second British General has attacked America's "fatally flawed" policy in Iraq, ratcheting up the tension between the two allies on the issue.

Major General Tim Cross - the most senior British officer involved in planning post-war Iraq - said he raised serious concerns with former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld BEFORE the invasion.

But he says his worries were dismissed out of hand.

The comments follow ex-Army chief General Sir Mike Jackson's attack on Mr Rumsfeld as "intellectually bankrupt".

General Cross, 56, said: "Right from the very beginning we were all very concerned about the lack of detail that had gone into the postwar plan - and there is no doubt that Rumsfeld was at the heart of that process.
