Guardian – MI6, Jack Straw, defence staff: Blair ignored them all: A reliable source concludes that, as a result of the July 23 prime ministerial summit, “there was a direct cause and effect” between the arrival of last-minute uncorroborated intelligence and the political imperative set by Blair in order to keep his commitment to Bush. It’s now clear that the JIC lost its critical faculties by failing to spot that the intelligence was being fixed around that policy, much as the Americans were doing. The committee had allowed itself to become sucked into helping Blair make the case for war.
