Moment of truth: Chilcot Inquiry blasts decision to invade Iraq (part 1)

The Chilcot Inquiry has unveiled seven years of findings on Tony Blair's decision to back the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Weapons of mass destruction that were never found, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis killed in a bitter civil war, as well as 179 UK servicemen and women, and a political vacuum that allowed the forefathers of ISIS to thrive. We look at the report's damning conclusions, how it's scarred Britain, and what it means for the UK’s role on the world stage.
