The release of Hillary Clinton’s emails have unintentionally leaked documents showing George Bush and Tony Blair’s push for war in the Middle East. One memo from then Secretary of State Colin Powell to Bush says “Blair will be with us… the UK will follow our lead.” The second document indicates a source within the United Kindom’s Labour Party informing the US Embassy on sentiment toward military action against Iraq from within the party.
A bombshell White House memo has revealed for the first time details of the ‘deal in blood’ forged by Tony Blair and George Bush over the Iraq War.
The sensational leak shows that Blair had given an unqualified pledge to sign up to the conflict a year before the invasion started.
It flies in the face of the Prime Minister’s public claims at the time that he was seeking a diplomatic solution to the crisis.
He told voters: ‘We’re not proposing military action’ – in direct contrast to what the secret email now reveals.
The documents, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, are part of a batch of secret emails held on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which U.S. courts have forced her to reveal.
