British Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn Apologies for His Party's Support for Iraq War

London, July 16 (RHC)-- British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has apologized on behalf of the Labour Party for its role in pushing Britain into the Iraq War. Corbyn said that his apologies are "first to the people of Iraq, where hundreds of thousands of lives have been lost in the country still living with a devastating consequence of the war and the forces it unleashed."

Jeremy Corbyn was the president of Stop the War coalition. This comes after the release of the long-awaited Chilcot report, which blames British Prime Minister Tony Blair for deliberately exaggerating the threat posed by Saddam Hussein in the lead-up to the Iraq War.
Blair was the longest serving Labour Prime Minister in British history.

The Chilcot report revealed Blair had been warned multiple times by Britain’s Joint Intelligence Committee that the invasion of Iraq would increase the threat of terrorism by Al Qaeda and other militant groups.
