The Iraq Inquiry Digest Project
Everything about the Chilcot Inquiry in one place
Iraq Inquiry Digest is a project to monitor and comment on the Chilcot Inquiry into the Iraq war. Its aim is both to inform and to provide a dynamic forum for comment and analysis as the Inquiry progresses. It seeks to provide a balance of views and opinion. Its objective is to be constructive and to provide reasoned and well argued comment.
The project is run by a collection of volunteers, journalists and public figures who want to establish the truth about the Iraq war. The editor is journalist Chris Ames.
The main aims are to set out what appear to be the main questions or issues that the inquiry will need to address and to provide a commentary on the Inquiry’s proceedings and revelations.
The site firstly seeks to set out the questions that the Inquiry will need to answer and the evidence that might answer them. The two are of course closely connected as many of the questions arise from what we know already. We try to show why the questions arise – why there is a “case to answer” – and what further questions the evidence prompts.
As the Inquiry gets going, the site will contain a running commentary of what its hearings – and hopefully newly published evidence show. The Inquiry’s proceedings will be scored on their transparency, as will the witnesses.
