Geoff Hoon, ex defence minister and "expert" on regime change (both in Iraq and the Labour Party), has appeared before the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq war.
He lost no opportunity in putting the boot into Gordon Brown, by noting that he had cut the budget for helicopters in 2003.
He also stated that the post invasion US planning was chaotic, indeed he admitted that he knew that before the war actually started.
He also noted that planning in the UK had started too late, and had written to Tony Blair complaining that no one had been identified to succeed Saddam Hussein.
Such a "pity" for the people of Iraq, and the troops who are dying out there, that these concerns were not made public at the time.
