After the string of expediently defined inquiries—the FAC, the ISC, Hutton, Butler—finally, Chilcot actually gets to the heart of matters. What no inquiry will explain, however, is the complete failure of parliament to recognise what the critical public recognised instantly: that the WMD dossier was a PR offensive designed to persuade, rather than an impartial review of the evidence. It’s politics at its most cynical to see those supine members that supported the war wash their hands of blame on the claim they were misled: Misled by a document couched in terms that you’d expect to be used to sell toothpaste.
