The most that could come out of this is that him and maybe a couple of others will become fall guys. The real criminal masterminds will be off living in retirement with their billions of dollars that they won't have to spend because everything will be taken care of by the taxpayers.

Thing is - they probably have a better chance with Howard than with Bush. Pre-war there was a LOT of evidence published here that this was unfounded and wrong. We even had senior foreign office diplomats resign because they were convinced that the evidence for war was wrong.
