How Blair let the troops down, by British war hero

Colonel Jorge Mendonca, exonerated at a court martial over the abuse of Iraqi prisoners, today launches a devastating attack on Tony Blair and his government.

The decorated officer – who quit the Army in disgust at his treatment – accuses Mr Blair of sending UK troops to occupy Basra after the Iraq invasion “with exactly the sort of half-baked plan that gets soldiers killed”.

In an exclusive interview with the Daily Mail, he pours scorn on the former prime minister’s naivety in “sweeping in on America’s coat-tails” with no clear strategy or adequate funding for British forces to rebuild the war-torn south of Iraq.
