Format: Paperback
Neil Mackay, a reporter for the Sunday Herald, has spent four years researching the rotten roots of the Iraq war.

He reveals how the Bush team planned the attack long before they seized power, how the US and British states set up secret units to lie about the `threat' from Iraq, how the media followed them in lying for war, how the Bush and Blair governments tried to destroy those who sought to expose their lies, how they sanctioned the torture of Iraqis, how their forces used WMD against the people of Iraq, and how we could and should impeach Blair for war crimes.

Mackay shows in detail that, in the 1990s, 24 US and 16 British firms, among others, armed Iraq with WMD. Then, under UN pressure, Iraq destroyed all its WMD. Bush and Blair knew this and knew that it had not restored its WMD programme.

Yet they lied that Iraq was a threat. As the former head of the Foreign Office's Iraq desk admitted, "We told downright lies." As the head of MI6 reported back from his visit to Washington, "the intelligence and the facts were being fixed around the policy." Similarly, we now know from the International Atomic Energy Authority that Iran has no nuclear weapons programme, but Bush and Brown lie that it is a threat.

The Joint Intelligence Committee told Blair before the war that the Al Qa'ida "threat would be heightened by military action against Iraq." So Blair knew that the war would worsen terrorism, but he told us the opposite.

In May 2003, the International Committee of the Red Cross and Amnesty International both told Blair and Bush that their troops were torturing Iraqi prisoners. Blair and Bush did nothing until after the pictures from Abu Ghraib had horrified the world, a year later.
