British authorities not releasing secret e-mails over Iraq war legality

The British government refuses to release secret e-mails sent by a top official about the legality of the Iraq war, The Sunday Times reports.

The Times said Baroness Morgan, a top aide to Tony Blair and a former director of government relations, sent confidential e-mails ahead of the invasion after meeting with Attorney General Lord Goldsmith.

The e-mails were sent before Lord Goldsmith issued his final legal advice which stated that the war was legal. His first ruling, issued ten days earlier on March 7, 2003, said that an invasion could lead to international legal action.
