11 June 2014 - A Home Office minister has launched an extraordinary attack on the Iraq War inquiry’s decision not to publish secret notes between Tony Blair and George Bush.
Norman Baker said key evidence was being ‘filleted’ and urged Mr Blair to intervene to insist that it is included in the long-delayed official report into the 2003 conflict.
Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry has been condemned as a whitewash over a deal to keep letters and notes of phone calls between the then US and UK leaders private.
Mr Baker, a Liberal Democrat minister who is a longstanding critic of the Iraq war, told the Daily Mail: ‘The British people have a right to know what was done in their name without it being filleted by those who would like to keep some matters secret.
'Iraq is perhaps the most serious undermining of democracy for decades and we need the full facts. We are now led to believe Tony Blair is happy to have everything published. I urge him now to call for that publicly.' read more>>>
