Tony Blair talks to Anderson Cooper about the Iraq crisis

Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is taking heat for recently claiming that the 2003 Iraq invasion was in no way responsible for the current crisis. In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Blair defended that remark and he tried to explain the complexity of the situation:
