Preparing For War

Tomorrow, Tony Blair is set to speak to Britain's Iraq Inquiry, which has been set up to review Britain's policies before and after the war. Sir Christopher Meyer will likely be following the hearing intently. He was the U.K.'s Ambassador to the U.S. when planes slammed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. As Ambassador, Sir Christopher played a crucial role during the chaotic events leading to the invasion of Afghanistan. Even more difficult was the behind-the-scenes navigation between President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair as America rapidly shifted its focus to Iraq. Sir Christopher shares his unique perspective, and talks about England's current public hearings into the run-up to that war.
