August 11, 2011 - FEDERAL Independent MP Andrew Wilkie wants former prime minister John Howard to front a "proper inquiry" into Australia's decision to join the war against Iraq in 2003.
Mr Wilkie, a former army officer and intelligence analysis, quit the Office of National Assessments (ONA) in March 2003, publicly disputing claims Iraq posed a clear risk through its possession of weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
"There needs to be an inquiry, a proper inquiry with very broad terms of reference which looks at the behaviour of the political leadership at the time," he told ABC Radio today, adding there had been two inquiries into the intelligence agencies.
"While the intelligence agencies did make some serious errors at the time, they were never responsible for the war."
Mr Wilkie's call comes a few days after the last Australian troops departed Iraq. read more>>>
