Tony Blair on the Iraq War



From Mail Online

CNN TV Interview (excerpts) - "Tony Blair says he's sorry for Iraq War 'mistakes,' but not for ousting Saddam" - 'I can say that I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong because, even though he had used chemical weapons extensively against his own people, against others, the program in the form that we thought it was did not exist in the way that we thought,' Blair said in an exclusive interview on CNN's Fareed Zakaria GPS that airs Sunday".

The Guardian (with CNN video excerpt)

“I apologise for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong,” he told CNN. “I also apologise for some of the mistakes in planning and, certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the regime.”
