Washington is playing the lead role in delaying the publication of the long-awaited report into how Britain went to war with Iraq, The Independent has learnt.
Although the Cabinet Office has been under fire for stalling the progress of the four-year Iraq Inquiry by Sir John Chilcot, senior diplomatic sources in the US and Whitehall indicated that it is officials in the White House and the US Department of State who have refused to sanction any declassification of critical pre- and post-war communications between George W Bush and Tony Blair.

What else is funny is that the sealed 911 commission testimony and those phone calls between Blair and Bush would be the smoking gun. How stupid can you gbe to talk on the phone? The mob isn't even that dumb.
But being separated by an ocean makes it hard to communicate face to face. They think they are immune because of their status and scramblers. One day someone is going to leak that s*** and I can't wait.
Must be on their minds all the time.
"Damn dude, we talked on the phone."
Ever watched Casino or Good Fellas?
They don't use the regular telephone line. They're supposed to have a direct line to each other, securely encrypted, and bypassing the regular phone network so it can never be jammed. Diplomatic channels are also supposed to be confidential so they have the freedom to speak frankly.
