David Miliband, protector of war criminals
Foreign Secretary David Miliband has published an early draft of the UK’s infamous dossier on Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction.
The document, by Foreign Office press chief John Williams, was an unpublished draft of the September 2002 dossier.
The Foreign Office lost its appeal against a ruling the document be published under the Freedom of Information Act.
It had argued that publishing it could inhibit the “effective conduct of government”.

Two points here…
Number one, the most important – where is the “45 minutes from attack” that Blair bludgeoned us with? Who inserted it into the final draft? That was one of Blair’s major lies, a waypoint in his gruesome trail to involve the UK in the massacre in Iraq.
Number two, apparently our Foreign Secretary believes that government can’t be effective unless decisions of this importance are kept out of the hands of ordinary citizens like you and me. Even though we’ll be the ones sent to die while the politicians remain all cosy at home. And we’ll be the ones being blown up in the streets as a result or our government’s warmongering.
We’re fit to die but we’re not fit to see this early draft, hence Miliband only released it when forced to by the courts.
Now, I don’t know what system of government Miliband believes in but it’s not democracy.
