Word you like to share a secret ?

The United Nations withheld the names of some of the most senior Lebanese and Syrian officials in Herr Mehli’s interim report. They were Maher al-Assad, Assef Shawkat, Hassan Khalil, Bahjat Suleyman and Jamal al-Sayyed.

The final edit began at about 11.38am on Thursday 20/10/05 one minute after Herr Mehlis met Kofi Annan to present his report. The names of Maher al-Assad, General Shawkat and the others were apparently removed at 11.55am, after the meeting ended.
Herr Mehlis said Mr Annan (his boss) applied no pressure. Nobody outside his team team influenced these changes and no changes whatsoever were suggested by the Secretary-General, he said.

Either they don’t understand how Word works like the dumb assholes and fuckwits in Blair's office at No 10 when preparing "dodgy dossiers" from cobbled together out of date Internet scrapings and wanted to present the high powered workings of a super sophisticated information gathering apparatus and ultra efficient secret service to justify the Prime Ministers lies, dishonesty and deceit to his Party, Parliament and the World in probably the biggest PR fuck-up of all time or someone wanted to ensure the names appeared in the public arena without attribution.

Deliberate leak. Duh. And they thought they could fool us. Tisk, tisk.

What the hell is wrong with Blair, besides megalomania and stupidity?

I would not accuse Blair of stupidity.... quite simply the English language struggles to produce a word to describe or parse the state of mind that is way, way beyond megalomania.

He can, it seems do anything, with virtually no opposition that can have any effect, muttering in the ranks, unease, letters in the right wing press, judiciary unsettled and sometimes very cutting, but nothing else.

We must not rest, we must resist.
