Author Tom Bower, who says he's interviewed 180 senior figures, has made the shock claim after a torturous week for dead soldiers' relatives
30 August 2015 - The Chilcot report on the Iraq War may only come out next June because it was 'so badly written' that military chiefs have forced the inquiry to be reopened, it's been reported.
Author Tom Bower, who says he's interviewed 180 cabinet, Army and Whitehall figures for a new book, has made the shock claim after a torturous week for dead soldiers' relatives.
Inquiry leader Sir John Chilcot has refused to name a date for his six-year report's publication despite missing a deadline to do so laid down by the families - who have threatened to sue him.
He claimed to understand the 'anguish' of families who lost loved ones but he insisted the costly report must be 'fair'.
Inquiry staff say the delay is due to the 'Maxwellisation' process of having to contact people who've been criticised, but insist this is almost complete.
Mr Bower, however, claims the problems run deeper after military chiefs objected to passages blaming them for acts which were politicians' responsibility.
"The generals and admirals protested that they had properly obeyed their legal orders," he wrote in the Sunday Times, adding: "The draft was so badly written that parts were incomprehensible." read more>>>

"And when you add up to the Department of Defense, Department of State, CIA, Veterans Affairs, interest on debt, the number that strikes me the most about how much we're committed financially to these wars and to our current policies is we have spent $250 billion already just on interest payments on the debt we've incurred for the Iraq and Afghan wars." 26 September 2014

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, let alone the results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, issues!
