Chilcot Report and the ‘patsy from Down Under’.

07/07/2016

The Chilcot Report on the UK involvement in the invasion of Iraq has just been released. In a commentary on the report, Paul McGeough in the SMH refers to John Howard as the ‘patsy from Down Under’.

The Chilcot Report concurs with the widespread view that the invasion of Iraq set in hand the awful devastation and death that we now see continuing in the Middle East.  the rise of ISIS can be attributed to the dreadful mistakes of Bush, Blair and Howard.
