LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his government did not mislead parliament or doctor evidence to justify the war on Iraq, a parliamentary committee concluded Monday.
The Foreign Affairs Committee, which has been probing charges officials exaggerated intelligence on Iraq's weapons to strengthen the case for war, cleared Blair, a top aide and ministers of the allegations, made on the BBC.
But the committee did slap the government's wrists for giving undue prominence to questionable intelligence in a September dossier on Iraq's weapons and for plagiarizing a student thesis for a second dossier published in February.

for plagiarizing a student thesis
The world is topsy-turvy: students, undergrad, are notorious for this.

Suck it, Trebek!
One thing disturbs me though; plagarizing a student thesis? Hmm...

Did they really plagiarize it, or forget to attribute it?
That depends on which side of the aisle you are on.

(The National League needs to adopt the designated hitter rule.)
And with that, the head of the BBC should be immediately terminated.
So if Tony Blair is cleared of misleading the public and he used the same "Shared Intel" as George W. Bush, I wonder if the media will "DO THE MATH" :-)
I doubt it
