According to View London, the British Foreign Office “has been ordered to publish an early draft of the controversial dossier on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction”:

The final document, which was issued by then prime minister Tony Blair in September 2002, was at the centre of a government scandal after accusations that the dossier had been ‘sexed up’ in order to encourage support for an invasion of Iraq.

The document reportedly said that “Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had the ability to launch WMDs within 45 minutes.”
