UK Iraq inquiry to question officials in US


By davidswanson - Posted on 18 May 2010

(AP) LONDON — Britain's Iraq war inquiry panel says it is holding meetings in the United States this week as it continues to investigate the 2003 U.S.-led invasion.

The panel is examining the case made for the war and errors in planning for post-conflict reconstruction — but it won't apportion blame or establish criminal or civil liability.

Britain's Cabinet Office said Tuesday the panel has arrived for five days of talks in Washington and Boston, but would not disclose in advance the identity of individuals meeting with the team.

It said that the panel visited France on May 4 to question ex-French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin and others.

Hearings in London began in November and have seen ex-prime ministers Tony Blair and Gordon Brown testify.
