PLAID Cymru’s Westminster leader [MP Elfyn Llwyd] yesterday revealed he has seen a top secret document that he says “proves beyond doubt” Tony Blair did a deal with George Bush to invade Iraq one year before the war.
Meirionnydd Nant Conwy MP Elfyn Llwyd insists he has seen highly confidential documents that prove “incontrovertibly” that the two men reached an agreement 11 months before the invasion.
Mr Llwyd said: “I think other things should have been pursued (at the inquiry), in particular the detailed conversation at the ranch in Crawford in April 2002.
“I do know for certain that the deal was struck, so just to pretend months down the road that no deal had been struck I think is unforgivable. I have offered to give evidence and Chilcot has said ‘I’ll come back to you’.”
Mr Llwyd said when the classified document was leaked to him five years ago the security forces became aware and that led to a visit from the Metropolitan Police. Asked if he still had the document he said: “No comment.”
He added: “I’m sorry I am being cagey about it, I simply don’t want the plod knocking on my door again. It created a huge interest among the intelligence community and a section of the Met came.
