Good lord, this looks like it'll be much more involved and, as the world waits, not for the U.S., especially those of Iraq at the receiving end of the terror, much more damaging then many had originally thought, during and at the end of the Inquiry!
A report into the UK's involvement in the Iraq war and its aftermath will not be published this year as had been planned, the inquiry team has said.
Sir John Chilcot said he would not report before the middle of 2013 at the earliest - a decade after the war.
He said the report would be about a million words long, about twice the size of literary epic War and Peace.
Discussions with officials over whether secret documents could be published in the report were continuing, he added.
Last November, the inquiry said it needed extra time to "do justice to the issue involved" and the earliest its conclusions would be handed to the prime minister was this summer.
But it has now announced a further delay, which is likely to result in the report not being completed until the end of next year.
In its first update on its work for seven months, the inquiry said it had made "extensive progress" in drafting its report, but the inquiry was "unprecedented" in scope and the issues were "complex".
The details came in a letter to Prime Minister David Cameron, released by the inquiry, from its chairman Sir John.
