W&L Audio:

Lord Butler

The Right Honourable Lord Frederick Edward Robin Butler of Brockwell discussed the intelligence that led up to the war in Iraq during a lecture at Washington and Lee University on Jan. 19, 2010.

Butler, who received an honorary degree from W&L earlier in the day, lectured as part of the Johnson Lecture Series, which aims to bring the world's leaders to campus so that our students may learn from their experiences the qualities of honor, leadership and integrity.

A former private secretary to five British prime ministers, Butler led a major investigation into the British decision to go to war in Iraq.
