"I apologise" said Tony Blair, in an interview with CNN, "for the fact that the intelligence I received was wrong."
What he means by "the intelligence I received" is the dossier, based on a plagiarized student thesis available on the Internet, which he ordered up to justify the Iraq war in fulfillment of his promise to George Dubya Bush, as recorded in a memo from US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, to President Bush, stating that:
"Blair continues to stand by you and the U.S. as we move forward on the war on terrorism and Iraq. He will present to you the strategic, tactical and public affairs lines that he believes will strengthen global support for our cause."
