There was no liberal intervention

Reports in today’s Telegraph clarify what every opponant of the war in Iraq knew all along:

The reports disclose that:

Tony Blair, the former prime minister, misled MPs and the public throughout 2002 over the timing of Britain’s military planning.

The Foreign Office unit to plan for postwar Iraq was set up only in late February, 2003, three weeks before the war started.

The plans “contained no detail once Baghdad had fallen”, causing a “notable loss of momentum” which was exploited by insurgents.
