The United Kingdom joined the Iraq invasion in 2003 before all options were exhausted, according to the findings of an inquiry released Wednesday.
"Military action at that time was not a last resort," Sir John Chilcot, the chairman of the Iraq Inquiry committee, said in a statement.
The inquiry, known widely as the Chilcot Report for inquiry chairman Sir John Chilcot, was formed in 2009 by then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
