"Why did we go to war in Iraq?" Iraq War Inquiry Group booklet: August 2012

What led to Australia invading Iraq in 2003? The Iraq War Inquiry Group is calling for an enquiry into the reasons behind Australia's participation in the invasion and a review of the war powers of the government, to draw out what lessons can be learned for the future. The case for an inquiry is set out in detail in a new booklet, “Why did we go to war in Iraq? A call for an Australian inquiry”, produced by the Iraq War Inquiry Group. The group consists of Australians from diverse backgrounds who are concerned that there has been little informed public discussion of the lessons to be learned from the decisions that took us to war in 2003.
