Tony Blair has denied ordering the burning of crucial Iraq War documents that are believed to have argued, weeks before the invasion of Iraq, that the war would be illegal.

The results of the British public inquiry into the 2003 invasion has again been postponed until as late as 2016. Earlier, Tony Blair said he apologized that the intelligence he received was wrong in the run-up to the war. Blair's so-called apology has drawn heavy criticism from observers worldwide, who say Blair has grossly disregarded his responsibility for one of the most controversial wars in recent times.

The Iraq war led to the displacement, injuries and deaths of millions of innocent civilians. Since the invasion by the West, Iraq has become gripped with chaos, extremism and terrorism. Blair is widely blamed for having creating the perfect conditions for the spawning and spread of Al-Qaeda and Daesh militants
