As stated in “The Report of the Iraq Inquiry – Executive Summary”: “467. At the meeting on 11 March, Mr Blair stated that Lord Goldsmith’s ‘advice made it clear that a reasonable case could be made’ that resolution 1441 was ‘capable of reviving’ the authorization of resolution 678, ‘although of course a second resolution would be preferable’. There was concern, however, that the advice did not offer a clear indication that military action would be lawful.”
