Iraq inquiry turns to weapons of mass destruction claim
Once again the weapons of mass discusion WMD are under question which will more and likely be skipped over in the final report if Gordon Brown wants it all white washed. We will find out if this committee is truthfully independent of which normally is never the case.
The UK government's claim that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction is being probed by the official inquiry into the war.
On its second day of hearings in London, the Iraq inquiry is questioning former senior Foreign Office staff Tim Dowse and William Ehrman.
They will discuss the intelligence available to ministers on Iraq's weapons prior to the US-led invasion.
The inquiry is not expected to report its full findings until 2011.
The reasons for going to war in Iraq - including the now discredited claim that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction which could be used within 45 minutes of an order being given - are a long-standing source of controversy.
