General Franks thinks the war in Iraq was totally justified.

In a HARDtalk interview on 28th October 2004, Zeinab Badawi talks to the former US Commander of forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, General Tommy Franks.

Now retired, General Franks responds to accusations from the Kerry campaign that the US army was neglectful in its duty to protect stockpiles of weapons in Iraq.

With Iraq dominating the US election campaign General Franks discusses the role he played in taking his country to war.

He admits he was expecting to discover the now controversial weapons of mass destruction when they entered Iraq, but says despite some setbacks, the conflict was justified.

HARDtalk can be seen on BBC World at 03:30 GMT, 08:30 GMT, 11:30 GMT, 15:30 GMT, 18:30 GMT and 23:30 GMT

It can also be seen on BBC News 24 at 04:30 and 23:30
