Questions are being asked about the way police and intelligence services handled an anti-terrorist raid in East London after the release of two men.Brothers Abdul Koyair, 20, and Mohammed Abdul Kahai, 23 , who was shot in the raid, were freed without charge on friday evening. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/5066846.stm Tony Blair was straight faced when he pronounced that he has 101% trust on the police action. Spinning like a smooth and humming top there. 2) Israeli artillery shells hit a Gaza beach killing 7 civilians and injuring dozens. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/5066496.stm The Israeli army spokesman said it was " regrettable " and that a " full and complete investigation will be conducted into the incident immediately". So it is OK then, tell that to the families!! Of course the reverse spins and sleaze is never acceptable from the other side, are they ? The art of this spin and slide has reached such pinnacle of expertise we need to grade them according to their achivement , much like the judo grading."

There are lots of same incidents around the globe, it's just that UK is a biggie so when it fails or commits error, really a headline. But of course such mistakes are hard to accept especially to families involved. It is good to know that we are still concerned with those people, and not just to gossip the mistakes of others. Hope they will come up with accurate reports next time, as in always.
