Last week I asked whether, on the basis of an interview he gave to The Australian, former Foreign Minister Alexander Downer had changed his mind about the merits of Australia's involvement in the invasion of Iraq. Mr Downer replies:

No, I haven't. Read what I said instead of trying to re-interpret it to match your own views. It was right to get rid of Saddam.
