TCH interview in Indy

"It wasn't my fault, boo hoo" sums it up.

Interviewed in today's Independent, Geoff Hoon, who was Defence Secretary at the time of the Iraq war, admitted that the US and Britain underestimated the level of violent resistance after the invasion. Mr Hoon, now the Leader of the House of Commons, said: "What we didn't do, I accept, was properly anticipate the level of violence people were prepared to use to oppose the creation of a democratic society. I don't think we appreciated the level of fanaticism and sheer anarchic violence people were prepared to employ."

Mr Hoon denied there was a lack of planning in Washington or London for the aftermath of the 2003 invasion. But he said: "With the benefit of hindsight, I don't think we quite appreciated that the insurgents were prepared to stop people having clean drinking water, were prepared to shut down the power supplies and damage the future of Iraq's economy
