Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair won’t face an investigation into whether he misled Parliament before the 2003 Iraq invasion unless new evidence emerges, a committee of lawmakers said Thursday.

A seven-year official inquiry into the war had cleared Blair of allegations that he had made a “personal and demonstrable decision to deceive Parliament or the public,” Parliament’s Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee said.

The committee said that several probes into the divisive war don’t “provide a sufficient basis” for a parliamentary investigation.

So Blair and Campbell’s two dodgy dossiers don’t count as deliberate attempts to deceive the UK parliament and electorate? That’s exactly what they were for.
