    Default British Iraq Inquiry Likely to Seek Testimony from U.S. Witnesses

    A U.K. government inquiry investigating Britain's involvement in the Iraq War may want to take testimony from U.S. citizens, a British government official has confirmed to NEWSWEEK. The U.K. investigation, which began public hearings late last month, is examining why the British government decided to participate in the operation to oust Saddam Hussein. The inquiry's mandate includes examining how the war was launched and conducted, what happened when the initial military operation ended, and whether there are "lessons that can be learned." In public testimony so far, U.K. notables—including then-prime minister Tony Blair's former national-security adviser and a former U.K. ambassador in Washington—have provided new details about how George W. Bush's fixation with Saddam surfaced only days after the 9/11 attacks. Former U.K. officials have also described how feuding among Bush administration factions over Iraq was so intense that British officials sometimes had to inform Washington contacts about what their rivals in the U.S. government were up to.
