The mind boggles at this decision

Several papers are reporting this morning that Brown will announce a new inquiry into the Iraq war as early as this week.  However, it is stated that the inquiry will be largely held in secret.  This seems a very strange decision for Brown to make at a time when he has to keep his critics and Labour backbenchers onside.

Perhaps the Americans have put pressure on our beleaguered leader for this secrecy?  It would hardly suit Obama’s agenda in wishing to move on from Iraq if any embarrassing facts were to come out.

Nevertheless, Brown bas brought himself a whole heap of trouble if the press reports are true.
