Tutu and Blair: how to capture the public imagination | Psycholitics & Psychonomics | Scoop.it
The decision by Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu to withdraw from a leadership summit in Sandton has sparked a rerun of the debate around the US- and UK-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, writes Stephen Grootes on our political blog...


'Archbishop Tutu says the reason he is no longer speaking at the summit is because of his distaste for the role played by former British prime minister Tony Blair during that conflict.'


'In the statement announcing his withdrawal, he says the Iraqi invasion was “morally indefensible”, while his spokesperson, Roger Friedman, has stressed the role of prayer in the decision.'
