British bombing raids were illegal, says Foreign Office - Sunday Times - Times Online

David Cameron sent me a letter from Mr Ingrams from the ministry of defence telling me that all the Governments activity in Iraq before the war was hunky dory.

Well, Mr Cameron, now I want you to go back to the Government and ask them or Mr Ingrams to square his letter with what the Foreign Office said.

British bombing raids were illegal, says Foreign Office - Sunday Times - Times Online: "British bombing raids were illegal, says Foreign Office
Michael Smith
A SHARP increase in British and American bombing raids on Iraq in the run-up to war “to put pressure on the regime” was illegal under international law, according to leaked Foreign Office legal advice.

The advice was first provided to senior ministers in March 2002. Two months later RAF and USAF jets began “spikes of activity” designed to goad Saddam Hussein into retaliating and giving the allies a pretext for war."
