An article written by Tony Blair’s charitable foundation examiningtony-blair-war-criminal the rise of the Islamic State makes scant reference to Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War.
The background piece entitled What Is ISIS? appears on the website of the former prime minister’s Faith Foundation.
It gives an in-depth analysis of the emergence of the terror group from its roots in 2002 – a year before the invasion – to its current stranglehold over vast swathes of Iraq and Syria.
But it makes little mention of the role the U.S. and British operation played, referring only to ‘Iraq’s descent into chaos between 2003 and 2007’.
