Daily Telegraph on Chilcot

The Daily Telegraph is preparing for the release of the Iraq Inquiry with an article written by Ben Farmer about the Army being too slow to scrap their “coffin” Land Rovers in Iraq  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/06/17/chilcot-mod-and-army-too-slow-on-snatch-land-rovers/

The families of the fallen deserve the answers they crave, but I do hope Sir John Chilcot explains the difference between technical safety and operational risk in his report, in order to avoid misunderstandings about blame.

See Chapter 5 pages 192-205 in Belfast to Benghazi for the story about Snatch Land Rovers and Army equipment in Iraq between 2004 and 2007.
