The inside view

The Guardian posts an overview of a new book by Sir Christopher Meyer, the UK Ambassador to Washington at the time when the Iraq war was planned (and thus somebody who saw the run-up to the war with full access to the best information in the hands of both the U.S. and the U.K.). In sum, Meyer argues that the U.S. wasn't about to go to war without Blair's support and was willing at least to delay the invasion to give inspectors more time. Meyer thus argues that Blair is culpable for failing to ensure that the invasion plans included at least some thought to what would happen following the occupation.

Give the article a read, and look forward to the book.
