Inquiring Brits Want to Talk to Bush and Friends
Posted on Mar 21, 2010
That U.K. inquiry into the Iraq war has already spoken to two prime ministers, but Sir John Chilcot’s panel would like an American take on things. Senior officials from George W. Bush’s administration, and maybe even W himself, have been cordially invited to give evidence.
Sources in Washington said the inquiry sent out emails “about three weeks ago” to senior officials in Mr Bush’s government including, it is believed, the former president himself.
Other requests are understood to have been made to Dick Cheney, Mr Bush’s vice-president, Condoleezza Rice, the former secretary of state, Donald Rumsfeld, the former US defence secretary, and Stephen Hadley, an ex-national security adviser – as well as to their deputies and senior assistants.
