UK agreed to shield U.S. interests in Iraq probe: WiKiLeaks

• Reuters

Britain's government gave secret assurances to Washington it would limit the scope of an inquiry into the Iraq war to protect U.S. interests, according to diplomatic messages leaked by a whistle-blowing website.

U.S. embassy cables obtained by WikiLeaks reported a British official, Jon Day, as telling U.S. officials in 2009 that Britain had "put measures in place to protect your interests" during the inquiry.

The inquiry was set up in 2009 by former Prime Minister Gordon Brown to learn lessons from the Iraq conflict, the most controversial episode in the 10-year premiership of Tony Blair, Brown's predecessor.

No news here.  What has been going on between those criminals Blair and Bush cannot even be ignored by the stupidest of proles.  After all, it's not as if they hid the fact that they were in bed together or anything.  It was right there, on your face, for all to see.
