Jimmy Carter on Blair

In an interview for the BBC Radio 4 programme Today, former US president Jimmy Carter described Tony Blair’s support for the Iraq war as a ‘major tragedy for the world’.

In the show, which was broadcast this morning, Mr Carter said that Blair’s attitude to Bush had been ‘abominable. Loyal, blind, apparently subservient.’

And he said that Tony Blair could have made a crucial difference to American political and public opinion by distancing himself during the build-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
