THE PEOPLE'S DOSSIER VERSUS THE DODGY DOSSIER
Have you submitted your question to Tony Blair for the
People's Dossier, which Stop the War will be presenting to the
Iraq Inquiry? Hundreds of questions have been sent in,
including contributions from Hans von Sponeck, the former UN
coordinater in Iraq, musician Brian Eno and a number of
Sami Ramadani, from Iraqi Democrats Against Occupation, has
sent in this question:
Mr Blair, you have often said that you "strongly believed" you
were doing "the right thing" when you sent British troops to
invade and occupy Iraq. Considering that Hitler and other war
criminals strongly believed that what they were doing was
right, do you think that strongly believing in something makes
it right, or pardonable if it proved to be terribly wrong?
Last week Alistair Campbell told the Iraq Inquiry he defends
"every single word" of the dossier presented to parliament in
September 2002. Blair wrote in the forward that it showed
"beyond doubt" that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, when
both he and Campbell knew full well that the intelligence had
not produced any evidence that they existed.
The second "dodgy" dossier" published in February 2003 was an
even more blatant fabrication intended to justify war crimes.
If you haven't sent in your question yet, please do so now.
Blair will be appearing at the Iraq Inquiry within the next
three weeks and we want the People's Dossier to be
representative of everyone who protested in such vast numbers
against his warmongering under the slogan "not in our name".

PROTEST THE DAY BLAIR GIVES EVIDENCE

Blair appears to insist there is no whitewash of his war
crimes. There will be events all day, including a naming the
dead ceremony, poetry readings, music and other performances.
