Lawyer’s Letter to ‘Save the Children’: Rescind “Global Legacy Award” to War Criminal Tony Blair
The top brass at global charity Save the Children are already regretting giving Tony Blair (photo, left) their “Global Legacy Award” and are now calling the whole affair ‘a painful experience’, and are in near meltdown due to staff anger.
The charity’s CEO, Jasmine Whitbread, has now admitted that, ‘there should have been better risk assessment’. One only wonders which far-away planet Whitbread and her colleagues were vacationing on when they slipped this career-building badge of honor under the table to the co-architect of the 2003 Iraq War.
WHY HE’S HATED BY MILLIONS WORLDWIDE: If you look up the word ‘stooge’ in the dictionary, you might one day find the name ‘Tony Blair’ there. That is his true legacy. A true Rothschild gopher, he’s also a known war criminal who has been allowed to roam freely around Europe and North America. Blair considers himself above the law, and has shown zero remorse over playing the pivotal role in fabricating the case for war, condemning hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis to death. Many believe that this self-serving money grubber, who takes millions from JP Morgan annually to use his official capacity in Jerusalem to broker lucrative deals, as well as holding down a do-nothing diplomatic position as a “peace envoy” to the Middle East (just imagine), should not be allowed to enjoy a meal in public without being descended upon by vigilant citizens who were deceived by Blair in the run-up to the Iraq War in 2002-2003.
Below is the legal challenge and lawyer’s letter to Save the Children – demanding they rescind Blair’s latest mantle piece…
The granting of the Global Legacy Award by Save the Children (STC) to an alleged war criminal has broad and complex legal implications which must be addressed.
Below is the text of the lawyer’s letter (December 5, 2014) sent out by COMAR LAW, San Francisco (California) to Save the Children (STC) on behalf of Felicity Arbuthnot, author and veteran war correspondent in Iraq, Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, Director of the Centre for Research on Globalization (CRG) and Denis J. Halliday, former Assistant Secretary General of the United Nations.
he lawyer’s letter demands that the Global Legacy Award to former Prime Minister Tony Blair be rescinded.
Also, we invite our readers to sign the petition to rescind the Global Legacy Award to Tony Blair, which now has 120,000 signatures.
An internal Save the Children staff letter considers the award to Tony Blair as, “a betrayal to Save the Children’s founding principles and values.”

In 2006, a former prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials, Benjamin Ferencz, stated that the Iraq War was a “clear breach of law.”2 “There’s no such thing as a war without atrocities, but war-making is the biggest atrocity of law.”
In 2010, a Dutch inquiry concluded that the Iraq War had no basis in international law.3
In 2010, Hans Blix, the former chief weapons inspector for the United Nations, stated that it was his “firm view” that the Iraq War was illegal.4
In 2012, judges empanelled before the Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal, an independent commission headed by former judges and involving input from several international law scholars, concluded that a prima facie case existed that Mr. Blair committed the crime of aggression against Iraq. The tribunal reported its findings to the International Criminal Court in the Hague and entered the name of Mr. Blair in its “Register of War Criminals.”
Also writing in 2012, Archbishop Desmond Tutu summarized that the “immoral” invasion, “premised on a lie,” has “destabilized and polarised the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history,” and questioned why Mr. Blair was not “made to answer” for his actions in the Hague.5
In 2013, an Iraqi woman filed a lawsuit in the Northern District of California alleging that US officials committed aggression in planning and executing the Iraq War. The case, Saleh v. Bush, et al. (N.D. Cal. Mar. 13, 2013, C 13 1124 JST), is currently awaiting the decision on amotion to dismiss brought by the United States government.
