Tony Blair admitted that the 2003 Iraq invasion played a role in the rise of the Islamic State. In an interview with CNN, he also apologised for mistakes made in the war.

The excuse for the Iraq invasion was that there was information that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Blair said that the information was false, and he expressed his regret.
