Tony Blair’s Lame “Apology”: Blames ‘Bad Intel’ for 2003 Iraq Invasion

In an interview with CNN this weekend, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair apologized (kind of/sort of/not really) for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

“I apologize for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong,” Blair said, somehow with a straight face.

“…The program in the form that we thought it was did not exist in the way that we thought, so I can apologize for that…”

“I can also apologize, by the way, for some of the mistakes in planning and certainly our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you remove the regime… But I find it hard to apologize for removing Saddam.”

He went on to admit that there are “elements of truth” to the statement that the rise of ISIS can be directly attributed to the invasion of Iraq.
