Straw 'advised Blair against war'
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw made a last-minute plea to Tony Blair not to go to war in Iraq, according to claims in a new book about the conflict

The book says Mr Blair flatly disagreed with Mr Straw's suggestion.

"For all his public assertions that the intelligence was rock-solid, Blair had his doubts throughout," says the book.

Mr Kampfner argues that Mr Blair adopted a war policy largely because of his belief that the US should be supported in its hour of need following September 11.

Thought i'd post this here for you lot to have a look at. Not sure if it's a dupe though.
