The then Prime Minister Tony Blair had assigned Sir John Scarlett to write the notorious dossier on Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) on September 2002.
But, Scarlett, who was head of the Joint Intelligence Committee, sent a memo to Blair's foreign affairs adviser referring to "the benefit of obscuring the fact that in terms of WMD Iraq is not that exceptional".
Joint Intelligence Committee was duty-bound to give impartial intelligence-based advice to ministers, but in this case, intelligence has been misrepresented to make the case for war.
TVNL Comment: And now that this (actually we knew this from day one), is known why is this man, along with Tony Blair, and George W. Bush, and all the people involved walking free? Why are they not in a prison awaiting their execution? Because they live safely in the false reality created and maintained by their establishment media.
