It ain't necessarily so

Is it possible that St. Tony lied to us (once again)? When the government quashed an investigation into BAE Systems and allegations of widespread bribery and corruption in its dealings with the Saudi government they swore to us that this was done for security purposes and not for commercial reasons. Now a previously unreleased letter between then Prime Minister St. Tony Blair and the Attorney General Lord Goldsmith rather explicitly shows that statement to be a complete and utter falsehood. And he seemed like such a nice boy.
