As we get closer to the long delayed release of the Chilcot British Iraq War Inquiry final report, supposed to finally come out in a few months, it seems the information damn is cracking and some of that information, not given in public testimony, is leaking out. This isn't the first as in the past recent number of weeks other information had started flowing slowly out.
After abandoning, very quickly, the main missions of why we sent our military into that region, and as that still finally winds down in attempts to accomplish at least a small fraction of.
Secret testimony to Chilcot Inquiry by British intelligence shows former PM 'accepted Libya was a bigger threat'
07 April 2013 - Hitherto unseen evidence given to the Chilcot Inquiry by British intelligence has revealed that former prime minister Tony Blair was told that Iraq had, at most, only a trivial amount of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and that Libya was in this respect a far greater threat.
Intelligence officers have disclosed that just the day before Mr Blair went to visit president George Bush in April 2002, he appeared to accept this but returned a "changed man" and subsequently ordered the production of dossiers to "find the intelligence" that he wanted to use to justify going to war.

“Today marks the opening of a new era in U.S.-Libya relations that will benefit Americans and Libyans alike,” U.S. Secretary of State Condeleeza Rice‘s obligatory statement about the new policy said. read more>>>
And not long after the bush regime made the Gadhafi a good bud of the U.S., much like Saddam once was, the CIA brought them into the fold of the CIA rendition secret prisons to torture those picked up and suspected of being criminal terrorist members of al Qaeda, delivering some of Gadhafi's enemies right into his hands!
24 November 2009 - Even before Bush's administration came to power an article written by his then national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, warned that "nothing will change" in Iraq until Saddam was gone
30 November 2009 - George Bush tried to make a connection between Iraq and al-Qaida in a conversation with Tony Blair three days after the 9/11 attacks, according to Blair's foreign policy adviser of the time.
3 December 2009 - Boyce mentions the "dysfunctionalism" of Washington. He says that he would find himself briefing his American counterparts on what was happening in different parts of the US administration. Rumsfeld was not sharing information
And more, we still have nothing on what went on behind closed doors and may or may not with the final report, if and when it's released.
