Hans Blix, former weapons inspector on Blair


Former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix has said he thinks Tony Blair saw WMD as a convenient justification for invasion of Iraq.

He said Mr Blair's suggestion that he would have found another argument for invading "sounds a bit like a fig leaf that was held up - and if the fig leaf had not been there, then they would have tried to put another fig leaf there".
