He stood up and proclaimed himself responsible for the war, meaning he had personally incited the Government at home and in India to march an army into Afghanistan to depose Dost Mohammed. The reason given by the president of the Board of Control was ‘the inveterate hostility’ of Dost Mohammed to the British. This was simply not true.
