Sandwich: Former Army Major on Chilcot

6 July 2016, 11:36

The long awaited Chilcot Report into the Iraq War has finally been published, seven years after the inquiry was opened and thirteen years after the war ended.

It looks into the causes and conduct of the conflict in 2003 in which 179 British soldiers, including two from Kent were killed.

It has found then Prime Minister Tony Blair's policy on Iraq was made on the basis of "flawed intelligence'' and the process for deciding that the 2003 invasion was legal was ``far from satisfactory'', a long-awaited report into the conflict has found.

The Iraq Inquiry found that Mr Blair's government presented evidence about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) "with a certainty that was not justified'' and troops were sent in before all peaceful options had been exhausted.

David Bradley, who is now a farmer in Sandwich, served as a Major during the conflict until he was medically discharged when he suffered serious injuries in an anti-tank missile attack in Basra. He has been telling Heart about his experiences.
