Oh the pain!!

Well here's a surprise.
The former head of MI5 delivered a devastating critique of the invasion of Iraq today, saying it substantially increased the threat of terrorist attacks in Britain and was a significant factor behind the radicalisation of young Muslims in the UK.
I believe I am quoting someone at Thunder's place when I say that every now and again one of the power lords gets their head out of their bum long enough to realise what  is actually going on. Now we will wait until this has faded from memory and some other Head of Intelligence takes the wrong pills.

They draw lots, you know, just to keep us guessing. Being the M15 guy means he wont get taken out by...M15.

Well, not on purpose, anyway.

Where purpose is absent M15 quickly fill the vacuum.
Purpose is a mark of terror. General (5 star) Millaise.

Here in USALand, when someone mentions 'blowback' they get accused of hating America, because everything we do is for Good™ and the terrist hate for our freedoms.

Tony Blair seems to find it harder to tell the truth than to lie. He has made a career of lying, even when it does not serve any purpose, perhaps in case a lapse into honesty set a dangerous precedent.

Yo Blair!
