Lord Bingham : Iraq Invasion Illegal
Iraq war 'violated rule of law'
Former attorney general Lord Goldsmith defended his legal advice
Legal advice given to Tony Blair by the attorney general prior to the Iraq war was fundamentally "flawed," a former law lord has claimed.
Lord Bingham said Lord Goldsmith had given Mr Blair "no hard evidence" that Iraq had defied UN resolutions "in a manner justifying resort to force".
Therefore, the action by the UK and US was "a serious violation of international law," Lord Bingham added.
Don't ask us how, but we've somehow managed to summon up sufficient super-human strength to stop ourselves from taking to the streets, screaming to everyone in sight: "We told you so."
