Just in case some people aren’t aware:
The date for the public hearing of former Prime Minister Tony Blair has been announced… by the Iraq Inquiry… Mr Blair will appear for a full day’s session on Friday 29th January 2010.
I have had so many competing issues to attend to over the last few months I simply haven’t had time to maintain this blog.
However, it is not abandoned. I will get back to it just as soon as I can and I can only imagine the type of material I’ll have to following Blair’s appearance before the Iraq Inquiry.
What will he say? What can he possibly say? Enough of the facts are now public to determine beyond reasonable doubt this man waged an illegal war that resulted in the deaths of uncounted innocent men, women and children.
What can he say? He did what he thought was right?
In many ways this would be the most truthful outcome. Because the record shows, Blair never had any qualms about resorting to violence to meet his objectives, and the agendas of his foreign friends in high places.
I will watch with the same uneasy fascination as the observers at Nuremburg must have felt as they listened to mass murderers make their excuses.
Meanwhile, thank you to everyone who has contacted me. I’m so, so, sorry I haven’t got back to you. The trouble is, I really don’t have time right now and I just know that if I get involved with this again I won’t be able to resist fully engaging.
Even this short note has me thinking of a host of things I need to research or catch up with. I’m amazed at how well the traffic levels have kept up to this blog. I won’t let it go to waste, I will be back, just as soon as I possibly can.
