The UK Chilkot inquiry into how they went to war in Iraq (first mentioned here yesterday) apparently held its first public sessions yesterday. It looks like the British will be treating themselves to much discussion and media coverage of the matter in the coming weeks.
I don't expect to follow it closely, nor blog about it often, you needn't worry. In the meantime, however, Normblog tells that some respectable British media types are openly doubting the predominance of Jews on the panel. Norm is a calm and measured bloke, who always prefers English understatement; still, his point is glum. In the very long tale of English animosity against Jews, the early 21st century is turning out to be worse than you might have expected.
