If You Could Ask Tony Blair One Question...What Would You Ask Today?


THE PEOPLE'S DOSSIER VERSUS THE DODGY DOSSIER | Stop The War | Press Release

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 military families.

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".

HOW TO SEND YOUR QUESTION
Send it by email to Stop the War. Write "Blair question" in the subject title of the email and send to office@stopwar.org.uk
