Head of inquiry into Iraq war expects report next year

The chairman of Britain’s Iraq war inquiry pledged in a letter released Thursday that his long-awaited report will be published next summer, disappointing the prime minister and families of slain service personnel who were hoping that it would happen sooner. John Chilcot’s new estimated time of delivery comes after months of pressure to complete the investigation, which began in 2009. The inquiry into decisions and mistakes in Britain’s planning and execution of the war has been delayed in part by a process that gives those who are criticized a chance to respond. “We will complete that work as swiftly as possible,” the letter said.
