Carter on Blair

Former US President Jimmy Carter has criticised Tony Blair for his "blind" support of the war in Iraq. He told the BBC that Mr Blair's backing for US President George W Bush had been "apparently subservient". Doesn't miss much, does our Jim.

He added that the UK's "almost undeviating" support for "the ill-advised policies of President Bush in Iraq had been a major tragedy for the world". Blair made a last visit to Iraq, presumably to get a first hand view of his handiwork. During the visit the rebels tried to mortar bomb him. Sadly they missed.
