Thoughts on Tony Blair's appearance before the Chilcot Inquiry

So Tony Blair believes he was right; I am shocked. What is more shocking is that vital papers were kept secret from the Inquiry so not all the evidence was made available and of course that Tony Blair was not interviewed by a lawyer or under oath. Whilst I would not necessarily trust Tony Blair to tell the truth under oath I don't see how he is more likely to tell the truth when not under oath.

The Times revealed today that a 'top secret, Downing Street memo from 6 months before 9/11 showed that Tony Blair offered Britain's support to the US in overthrowing Sadam Hussein. Doesn't that blow a hole in Tony Blair's evidence? Maybe he should be called back to be questioned on this, but presupposes that the Chilcot Inquiry is about discovering the whole truth...
