Blair's WMD lies exposed by Bremer



The American politician controlling the US puppet government in Iraq has "rejected" and "contradicted" continuing claims from the UK Prime Minister that there is new evidence to justify the war on Iraq.

When the head of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq heard these claims, he dismissed them as untrue. Paul Bremer said: "but that is not what David Kay has said." Bremer was adamant, and stressed, "I have read his reports."  Kay heads the Iraq Survey Group, the US-led team with orders to find evidence of WMD in order to justify the invasion.

When the US government invaded Iraq, they and their ally the UK government used WMD as an excuse, claiming that the purpose of the war was to disarm the Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein. Unfortunately you can never trust a politician. There was no evidence whatsoever to support their false claims. There was no illegal weapons programme in Iraq following the 1991 Gulf war.

This latest glimpse of the true story has prompted senior public figures to describe the pre-war propaganda about Iraqi WMD as "deception". The war-mongers in the US and UK have been labelled in the strongest and most racially-sensitive term yet, as "white vigilantes".

The politicians will never mention the true reasons for the war on Iraq, but the truth is available for anybody who bothers to look for themselves.

    The US official running Iraq appears to have contradicted Tony Blair's claim Saddam Hussein had laboratories for developing weapons of mass destruction.
    The prime minister said in a Christmas message to UK troops that the Iraq Survey Group (ISG) had unearthed "massive evidence" of clandestine labs.
    The head of the Coalition Provisional Authority said it was not true.
    Paul Bremer said it sounded like a "red herring" made up by someone to upset the rebuilding effort.
    But Mr Bremer seems to have been unaware that the quotes had come from Mr Blair when they were put to him in an interview on ITV1's Jonathan Dimbleby programme.
    "I don't know where those words come from but that is not what (ISG chief) David Kay has said," he said.
    "I have read his reports so I don't know who said that.
    "It sounds like a bit of a red herring to me. It sounds like someone who doesn't agree with the policy sets up a red herring then knocks it down."
    However when it was pointed out the remarks had come from the leader of the US's closest ally, Mr Bremer seemed to pull back from his original remarks.
    ...
    Former chief UN weapons inspector Hans Blix has also cast doubt on Mr Blair's assertion.
    ...
    Echoing what Mr Bremer said, Dr Blix said that the ISG had failed to produce any concrete evidence that the laboratories they had found were working on WMD.

    Clare Short has called on Tony Blair to resign because she says he deceived the British people over the Iraq war.
    ...
    "No one thought there was some imminent danger. That was all talked up and talked up to a point of deceit," she said.

BBC News, "Blair under fire from top clergy", 29 December 2003.
[ http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/3353387.stm ]
    Tony Blair has been criticised by two Church of England leaders for his handling of the war in Iraq.
    Dr David Hope, the Archbishop of York, questioned the legitimacy of the war and warned that the prime minister would have to answer in the end to God.
    And the Bishop of Durham, Dr Tom Wright, called Mr Blair a "vigilante".
    The criticism comes a day after the US official running Iraq contradicted Mr Blair's claim the country had labs for developing weapons of mass destruction.
    Former Foreign Secretary Robin Cook said it was time for the government to admit it had been wrong about the threat posed by Saddam Hussein.
    Dr Hope, Britain's second most senior church leader, criticised Mr Blair for not listening to opponents during the war in Iraq.
    In an interview in the Times, he said: "We still have not found any weapons of mass destruction anywhere.
    ...
    Dr Wright said he did not think Mr Blair and US President George W Bush had the credibility to deal with the problems in Iraq.
    "For Bush and Blair to go into Iraq together was like a bunch of white vigilantes going into Brixton..."

    An eminent panel of legal experts is to accuse Tony Blair of committing war crimes in Iraq in a formal complaint to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
    The panel, which includes law professors from universities in Britain, Ireland, France and Canada, will claim on Tuesday there is compelling evidence that the Prime Minister broke international law and UN treaties by invading Iraq last year.
    The eight experts will recommend that the ICC launches a formal investigation into the Government's conduct - the first step towards indicting ministers for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
