“Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair has said he would have found a justification for invading Iraq even without the now-discredited evidence that Saddam Hussein was trying to produce weapons of mass destruction. ‘I would still have thought it right to remove him. I mean, obviously you would have had to use and deploy different arguments about the nature of the threat,’ Blair told the BBC in an interview to be broadcast this morning [December 13, 2009].”
