Iraq inquiry: Gordon Brown says war was 'right'





Gordon Brown has told the Iraq inquiry the war had been "right" - and troops had all the equipment they needed.

The PM also insisted he had not been kept in the dark by Tony Blair despite not being aware of some developments.

His own intelligence briefings had convinced him that Iraq was a threat that "had to be dealt with", he said.

But the main issue for him was that Iraq was in breach of UN resolutions - and that "rogue states" could not be allowed to flout international law.
