Bush and Blair Struck Deal to Invade Iraq, says Welsh MP

Wednesday, February 3, 2010


Long suspected and finally confirmed, a senior Welsh MP, Elfyn Llwyd, Plaid Cymru’s parliamentary leader, said he has seen a confidential memo which proves George W. Bush and Tony Blair struck a deal to invade Iraq at their notorious Crawford Ranch meeting in 2002 – a year before war was declared.

Critics of the Iraq war have long suspected Mr. Bush and Mr. Blair came to an agreement at the former president’s faux ranch in Crawford, Texas in April 2002, a claim Mr. Blair denied in evidence to the Chilcot Inquiry last week.

MP Llwyd said he had offered to give evidence to the Chilcot Inquiry himself, in private if necessary.

“I think other things should have been pursued [at the inquiry], in particular the detailed conversation at the ranch in Crawford in April 2002. I do know that the deal was struck, I know for certain it was struck at that stage so just to pretend months down the road that no deal had been struck I think is unforgivable. I have offered to give evidence and Chilcot has said ‘I’ll come back to you’. At that stage I will have private discussions with him.”

The shocking admission confirms what many have said about the relationship between the former U.S. president and his equivalent, the former British Prime Minister. The admission also helps to explain why Blair, speaking at the Chilcot Inquiry, reiterated his belief that the Iraq war was wholly justified.

    I wonder what type of financial compensation the Bush dynasty managed to send Poodle Blair’s way for his cooperation on the Iraq war?

    He and Cherie are living like British royals now and this isn’t typical for current or former PMs.

    I bet the check was in the millions.

    Chilcot told Llwyd, ‘I’ll come back to you’? Wow, it sure sounds like the people in charge of the inquiry were very interested in the truth about Blair’s role in helping Shrub go to war. I always thought when war is the issue, there’s a sense of urgency to get to the truth? I guess I don’t know history.

    That image is so gross. LOL

    Didn’t Blair begin as the Labour Party candidate? I guess anyone is ‘For Sale’ if you dangle enough coin under their nose. Even a liberal. It’s all so interesting how we’re beginning to get drips and nuggets about the awful Bush years.

  5. JollyRoger says:

    This is no “shocking” revelation. Blair was about as liberal as Clinton was, meaning he was up for bids the day he arrived at 10 Downing Street.

    Looks like he made his pile. So what if a few (hundred thousand) people had to die so he could cash in?

    Maybe there were two Pickles?

    a. Pickles #1 = Laura Bush
    b. Pickles #2 = Tony Blair

    But we know which Pickles spent the most time on his hands and knees. :-)

    That’s the funniest and most apt picture I’ve ever seen of Poodle Blair doing what he does best. To think there was once a time I thought Blair was a decent guy. Obviously, so did the British voters. I can’t believe how terrible he turned out to be. Can’t he be prosecuted for what he did?

    Joe in Colorado: Part of the problem is that, in the UK and the US, political campaigns are privately financed.

    b. Pickles #2 = Tony Blair

    Woyoyo,

    Methinks there were three Pickles.
    1. Laura
    2. Tony Blair
    3. Joe Lieberman

    I’m not surprised at all. Most of us knew something was going on under the table to “justify” the war for oil.

    The Bush clan has 100,000 acres in Paraguay. If the Chilcot Inquiry pushes too hard, my guess is, Poodle and Mrs. Poodle will just relocate to South America and never be heard from again.

    Surely, Bush would let the Blairs live on an acre?

    That image is funny and disturbing all at once! I love seeing Blair preparing to please his Master. The two of them are two of the most vile politicians I can remember in a long, long life. Too bad it looks like Blair will walk. These criminals always get away with it, and become wealthy in the process.
