In a statement on its website, posted on Wednesday but pointing only in general terms to the serious difficulties it is confronting, the inquiry panel said: "Pulling together and analysing the evidence and identifying the lessons, for a report that covers so wide and complex a range of issues and a time period of some nine years, is a significant task.

"The inquiry has advised the government that it will need until at least summer 2012 to produce a draft report which will do justice to the issues involved. Very considerable progress has already been made, but there is still much to be done."

2. Hope Blair get's whats due him.
The truth needs to come out about what Blair and Bush agreed upon when they lied us into an illegal immoral war.
All the innocent people who died deserve that justice.
