Blair ready to be grilled in secret Iraq probeJune 16th, 2009 - 1:01 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 16 (ANI): Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is to be grilled in a secret Iraq War inquiry ordered last night by his successor Gordon Brown.According to The Sun, Blair will be a main witness in the probe.
The country’s military top brass will insist that its occupation force was too small, under funded and poorly equipped.
However, no one will be forced to give evidence and hearings will be in private - prompting warnings of a whitewash.
Blair is understood to be happy to give evidence on his role in the run-up to the 2003 invasion.
Tory leader David Cameron vowed not to be bound by the findings if he is PM next July.
He said: “If mistakes were made, we need to know who made them and why.” (ANI)
