Britain: Questioning the Iraq War

Prime Minister Gordon Brown says the government will launch an inquiry into the unpopular war

Monday, June 15, 2009

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown will launch an inquiry into the Iraq War. Britain backed up the U.S. during the invasion of 2003 and British soldiers fought in Iraq. The war was unpopular in the U.K. and hurt the political standing of Brown's predecessor Tony Blair. Joining The Takeaway is BBC Political Correspondent and a Former BBC Pentagon Correspondent Nick Childs to talk about the inquiry.
