Blair OK’d Iraq Invasion Before U.N. Resolution, Book Says

Posted on Jan 30, 2006

Guardian: Tony Blair told George Bush that he was prepared to join the invasion of Iraq without a second UN resolution in January 2003, before he received legal advice from the attorney general, according to new material to be published this week.

Evidence that the prime minister was determined to commit British troops to the war is revealed in a new edition of Lawless World by Philippe Sands QC, professor of international law at London University. The first edition caused controversy last year by revealing that Lord Goldsmith, the attorney general, told Mr Blair two weeks before the invasion that military action could be illegal.  | story

Truthdig says: We’re shocked, SHOCKED to learn that the U.N. gambit was apparently a ruse.
