Conspiracy Clinic
Iraq War: Is Tony Blair A War Criminal?

24th June 2012: Alistair Campbell says that Tony Blair stopped the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith,  from giving the case against the war in Iraq to the cabinet in March 2003, according to reports in the Independent [source]. Campbell, Tony Blair's Director of Communications at the time, has just published another volume of his memoirs. It is claimed that had a balanced, more nuanced view, been given, war critics in the cabinet Clare Short and Robin Cook would have voted against war. Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, Tony Blair denied the allegations.

28th May 2012: At the Leveson Inquiry a protestor entered and shouted some widely published conspiracy arguments, below. After he had been bundled out of the court room we had an on the record and on oath comment from Tony Blair...

David Lawley Wakelin, who broke into the court, shouted the following:

"This man should be arrested for war crimes. JP Morgan paid him off for the Iraq War, 3 months after we invaded Iraq they held up the Iraq Bank for 20 billion he was then paid $6mn dollars every year and still is from JP Morgan 6 months after he left office. The man is a war criminal."

To which Tony Blair said:

"What he said about Iraq and JP Morgan is completely and totally untrue. I have never had a discussion about that or any relationship between them and Iraq.
