Good timing for Little Rock visit by Tony Blair

Posted By on Thu, Jul 7, 2016 at 7:36 AM

A report released yesterday in Great Britain blistered Tony Blair for his 2003 decision as prime minister to go to war in Iraq based on what we all now know was bad U.S. intelligence. Blair responded to the report in a two-hour news conference.

As luck has it, Blair is scheduled to be in Little Rock next week  to speak in the by-invitation Kumpuris Lecture Series held in conjunction with the Clinton Presidential Center.

Former President George W. Bush, who led the U.S. into the war, has until now been silent on the British report.
