‘US Withholding Chilcot Inquiry Docs As They May Discourage Future Wars US is Interested in’

Washington’s refusal to declassify documents that could inform the UK probe into the 2003 invasion of Iraq is a major scandal in London. Yet the State Department spokesman says he has never heard of the Chilcot Inquiry. RT talks to American author and activist David Swanson. He thinks information is being deliberately withheld.

The issue that Swanson raises is that the war was knowingly illegal and they want to keep further proof of this hidden. We already know, from documents such as the Downing Street Memos, that the war was launched on lies - the manipulated and outright fabricated intelligence points concerning WMDs.
