General Sir Nicholas Houghton believed to be holding up Chilcot inquiry | Daily Mail Online

This is a powerful, must-read article from the Daily Mail.

via General Sir Nicholas Houghton believed to be holding up Chilcot inquiry | Daily Mail Online.

Personally, I think that publication of the Chilcot enquiry is way overdue. David Cameron’s government should set a deadline for publication, irespective of the views of General Sir Nicholas Houghton  or others in the firing line. If necessary, they should be removed from office.

The public interest must be given priority.

Thoughts?

One response

  1. Sadly, Sir Nicholas Houghton is not the only cause of the delay to the completion of the Chilcott enquiry.
    The American Government has 44 pages of redacted material that is relevant to the enquiry and it refuses to release any of it.

    The real reasons for invading IRAQ were geopolitical and had to do with:

    a) The reordering of the Middle East chessboard, as a precursor to “taking-down” a number of regimes in the Middle-East, prior to destabilising countries on Russia’s southern flank

    b) $61 trillion dollars worth of oil

    c) Something alegedly in the museum in Baghdad that America wanted above anything else.

    Sir John Chilcott and his team were probably chosen for their weakness and have only worked on the report on average 3 days a week whilst doing other things.

    Maxwellisation has been a convenient excuse and now Sir Nicholas Houghton is put forward as the scapegoat.
    The truth is as per my a), b) and c), plus other reasons I am not privy to. I sense that it had nothing to do with terrorism, “weapons of mass destruction” or any of the reasons advanced by Tony Blair or the Establishment.

    The public interest will not be served and the Chilcott process will fail just as it was meant to.
