The boring Cabinet minutes on Iraq

Why is much being made about a decision to have a set of Cabinet minutes published?  OK they deal with Iraq and the decision to invade.  If  they are published they will say nothing.  All intelligence info will be removed and no names of who said what will be quoted.

None of the major decisions were taken by the Cabinet in any case but by small groups sitting on sofas.  And there is a wider point.  How will effective Cabinet government be restored if minutes are published?
