Sir John Chilcot, a member of the British establishment and also a member of the Butler Inquiry, the responsibility of which was to determine if the so-called "intelligence" used as the excuse for the US/UK invasion of Saddam Hussein's Iraq was "fixed" to justify the invasion, has, after seven years of delay, finally issued its report.

Remember, there was a leaked memo from the head of British intelligence that the intelligence justifying the Iraqi Invasion was "fixed" or orchestrated to produce the justification for the invasion, a war crime under the Nuremberg standard established by the United States.

Chilcot's job was to make this fact go away or assume less importance and to protect the Butler Inquiry's orchestrated verdict that, despite the word of the head of British intelligence, the intelligence was not fixed.

In other words, Sir John's assigned task under the guise of an "impartial inquiry" was to absolve former UK PM and war criminal Tony Blair not of all responsibility but of all responsibility deserving of prosecution.

Sir John's report is akin to FBI director Comey's report on Hillary: They did it but they didn't do it enough to be prosecuted.

In the context of democratic politics, if such existed in England, Tony Blair would be in the crosshairs of the ruling UK party, the Tories or Conservatives. Yet, as both parties represent the same private interest groups, the Conservative Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has announced his resignation effective next October, rushed to the opposition party's defense and gave in Parliament what former British Ambassador Craig Murray calls a "dishonest, apologia for the invasion that bore no relationship to the Chilcot report."

The UK media, for the most part, also came out in defense of Tony Blair, the war criminal and liar, providing, according to Amb. Murray, "unlimited airtime to Blair and his defender Alastair Campbell" and "almost no airtime to those who campaigned against the war."

Here is the judgement of a British Ambassador, Craig Murray: "Blair is still a creature of absolute self-serving slime."

You could make the same judgment on almost every member of the Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes. And Hillary's regime would be even worse. My prediction is that life on earth would not survive Hillary's first term.

Elect Hillary and die.
