Leaked Documents Reveal No 10 Cover-Up Over Iraq Invasion

Military commanders are expected to tell the inquiry into the Iraq war, which opens on Tuesday, that the invasion was ill-conceived and that preparations were sabotaged by Tony Blair's government's attempts to mislead the public.

They were so shocked by the lack of preparation for the aftermath of the invasion that they believe members of the British and US governments at the time could be prosecuted for war crimes by breaching the duty outlined in the Geneva convention to safeguard civilians in a conflict, the Guardian has been told.

We know from the Downing Street Memos and the Dodgy Dossier that the Blair Government lied in step with the Bush Administration in order to launch the invasion of Iraq.
