Following the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair sent a private note to former President George W. Bush calling for an international agenda “that puts onto a new footing action against this evil.”
“If this is a war — and in practical, if not legal terms, it is — we need war methods,” Blair wrote.
The note, dated Sept. 12, 2001, was declassified as part of The Chilcot inquiry’s report on the Iraq War and its causes.
“The West has pussyfooted around with these issues,” Blair wrote. “These groups don’t play by liberal rules and we can’t either.”
