WMDs in 45 minutes claim 'was asking for trouble', admits Blair's security chief





Tony Blair's intelligence chief told the Iraq Inquiry that if the public had been allowed to see all the intelligence on which Britain went to war, they would have said: 'Is that it?'

In a damning assessment of the way the evidence was spun into a case for war, former Cabinet Office Intelligence and Security Co-ordinator Sir David Omand denounced Mr Blair's Downing Street dossier as a 'big mistake'.

He said the claim that Iraq could fire weapons of mass destruction in 45 minutes was 'asking for trouble'.
