Was the invasion of Iraq worthwhile?

The former chief of MI5 today said that the terror threat was "undoubtedly increased" by the invasion of Iraq. We have known for some time that the initial cause for the invasion of Iraq, the possibility of Saddam having WMD, has been wrong. As the war was after the September 11th attacks another possible reason was terrorism. This too is now being acknowledged as being a false reason behind the invasion. However could the invasion still have been worthwhile? The Iraqis have gained freedom from tyranny and a sort of democracy, oil flows again and the economy and quality of life are slowly improving.
