#Chilcot - Australia's Guilt
After seven years of investigation and hearings, the Chilcot report has produced a damning verdict of Blair for almost blindly following the Bush administration in taking Britain to war. If there is a Royal Commission inquiry in Australia, one can rest assured that its findings will not be all that different from those of the Chilcot report.
One such figure was Andrew Wilkie, now a returned independent member of the Australian parliament. Having been an intelligence officer within the Office of National Assessments and subsequent whistle-blower on the dubious intelligence practices he bore witness to, the Tasmanian MP insisted that Australia needed its own variant of Chilcot.
