The shocking news keeps on coming

It appears that Tony Blair lied in order to drag the U.K. into the invasion of Iraq. No, that's not the shocking part. The shocking part (ok, it's a very mild shock) is that he didn't just lie to the British people. He lied to his own cabinet as well. Given a clear legal opinion that the invasion of Iraq would be illegal (and hence those participating in it war criminals, and British soldiers subject to prosecution), he withheld that information from his cabinet, until, on the verge of the invasion and with a lot of arm-twisting, they managed to get the opinion reversed. Sort of.

In similar unshocking news, the U.S. corporate media continues to ignore the story of the U.K. enquiry into the war.
