Blair blows his top
    #1596590 - 05/31/03 05:19 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

TONY BLAIR yesterday furiously denied lying amid spiralling controversy over Iraq's weapons of mass destruction.

Rattled Mr Blair rejected claims he had ordered MI6 to "sex-up" the government's dossier on Iraq's weapons to justify his moral case for backing the US-led attack.

And he said accusations that the security services had been told to invent intelligence were absurd.

Mr Blair hijacked a joint-press conference with the Polish Prime Minister Leszek Miller, which was meant to focus on Europe, as his clear irritation spilled out.

He did not bother to wait for the Polish interpreter to keep pace as he defended the "dodgy dossier".

At the Chancellery building in Warsaw, Mr Blair said: "The evidence of weapons of mass destruction is evidence the truth of which I have absolutely no doubt at all.

"That idea that we made our own intelligence services invent some piece of evidence is completely absurd."

The PM is under mounting pressure after a senior intelligence officer said Blair's key WMD dossier was "sexed up".

Spin doctors were said to have told intelligence officers to put in claims that Saddam was 45 minutes away from firing chemical weapons.

In a major gaff, Defence Minister Adam Ingram then confirmed that part of the dossier was only based on a single source - rather than the golden rule of two.

The Government faces a Labour backlash from back-bench MPs.

Mr Blair is understood to have "hit the roof" when he learned of the new twist as he travelled from meeting British troops in Iraq to Poland on Thursday night.

Asked why he had not even mentioned WMD during his five-hour visit to Iraq, Mr Blair said: "Now our priority, having got rid of Saddam, is to rebuild the company. So the focus is on the humanitarian and the political reconstruction of the country."

The pressure increased yesterday as Liberal Democrat leader in the Lords Baroness Williams, formerly Labour Cabinet minister Shirley Williams said: "As new and disturbing facts emerge, the war begins to look more and more like a tragic mistake."

I saw George Bush on TV the other day saying that they have found weapons of mass destruction, they have found labratories and they were justified in going in...

He said to all the people who believe its not true they had better start believing it because its out their and theyve already found it...

Well I wana see proof, I wana see a clear and eminent threat to the US or even Europe.

As for Mr Blair, hes a pawn, he was lied to by the US. He may have had his own intelligence but Ill bet anything that he was tricked into this by our government.

It's all doublethink, they tell us what to believe and we swallow it as the truth. The motives for war keeps changing, the enemy, but the enemy is always evil incarnite and we must always support that.

Clear and imminent threat? Saddam Hussein provided 30,000$ to the families of each suicide bomber that killed Israelies. There, clear and imminent threat. I'm sure that you won't argue the fact that Saddam did this, nor how immoral and radical this action is, but instead attack bush for upsetting that peaceful, loving, Arab President. Interesting.

I don't think anyone believes that Hussein was a "peaceful and loving Arab president". However, it is - and was at the time of our much celebrated "war" - quite illegal to invade another country. For any reason, OTHER than a grevious threat of clear and present danger (to borrow a phrase).

The reasons given for our illegal invasion should, at the very least in order to hold up appearances of legitimacy, HOLD FUCKING WATER!!!

I know of NO person that believes that taking out Hussein (a non-factoid, as we cannot prove one way or the other the current status of said Arab president) was not, on the whole, a good thing to do. But there are rules. There are laws. We are NOT the only country on the globe, despite what your cowboy fucking "president" seems to think.

What the same people DO believe, however, is that if we, the good ol' US of A, are going to invade another country - against every international law on the book, against the mandate of the UN, the European Union and without the support of NATO, against the wishes of most of the people in the world and even most of the people in OUR OWN COUNTRY, then the very least we as a nation could do is to have our reasons for this action stand up to scrutiny. Don't give me any of this 'ends justify the means' bullshit either... We had a responsibility. We gave our suppposedly incontravertable proof as to WMD as our imminent threat for this invasion, carried it out at the cost of thousands of Iraqi civilian lives and billions in damage.

How the fuck is this NOT a problem?

The thing is that most Americans are so jaded that the invasion didnt need to be legitimate anymore. People have a short memory and attention span. they are off Iraq and onto the next reality tv show, or the capture of that rudolph bomber guy, or killer bee sharks with SARS and people in Kansas freting about hurricanes and Amber Alerts or the next big thing that will make their lives interesting again.
