Another Bad Day for Tony Blair

This Guardian Unlimited article details doubts in Britains high command about the legality of the Iraq war, up to less than a week before the start of Shock and Awe.

"[Admiral Sir Michael] Boyce demanded an unambiguous, one-line note from the Attorney-General saying the war was legal to ensure military chiefs and their soldiers would not be 'put through the mill' at the International Criminal Court.

His comments will fuel pressure on Blair to release full details of how Goldsmith came to his decision. The fact that it still took several days during this critical period to give Boyce his assurance provides further evidence of uncertainty in Government about the legality of the war."

The game's afoot!
