This one won't go away for Blair, as everything in the past seems to have.
The truth is that Blair has to find them. In two years time at election time, if they haven't been found, and I don't think there is anything to find, Blair will have this round his neck like a mill stone.
Excellent article. Sums up the growing problems for the government and lack of evidence of WMD in Iraq. looks like the White house is changing its argument and is gonna leave Bliar to fight his own cause.
In a strange way, I'm kind of angry about it. Bluppet , for whatever reason, decided to support our traditional ally,in the face of great opposition at home and abroad and no attempt has been made by them to rally to his cause.
Caught a bit of the Condospellingmistake interview. Oh, they've left him to die all right. Now there are allusions to the Niger papers coming from a foreign intelligence agency. the papers are guessing at France, I'm guessing somewhere in the Middle East, close to Syria and Jordan.
Still, Blair must have realised he'd been had, grand style, when the "new Iraqi Parliament" met for the first time today. 25 men and women, who weren't in Iraq while Saddam reigned, and to top it all, Chalibi was right there.
At that point, I think the Iraqis, certainly the Jordanians, who I believe, still have a cell with Chalibi's name on it, think the whole thing is more bent than a bent thing.
