Iraq critics owe me apology: Howard: "John Howard said yesterday that the British report clearing the Blair Government of claims it 'sexed up' its intelligence on Saddam Hussein's weapons also exonerated him. 'Those who have accused us of taking Australia to war on a lie owe me as much an apology as those who made equal accusations against Tony Blair owe him an apology,' the Prime Minister said. Asked if he was concerned that intelligence warnings that Iraq had stockpiled weapons of mass destruction appeared to have been incorrect, Mr Howard said: 'It's still too early to make a final judgment. If you wait for proof beyond all reasonable doubt, as I said more than a year ago, you face a potential Pearl Harbour situation.'"

How can he continue to get away with it? There were no Weapons of Mass Destruction. There were no links with al-Qaeda. It was all a pack of lies. There was an abundance of evidence it was a neo-conservative inspired invasion to get control of Iraqi oil and establish military bases in the heart of the Gulf region.
