All very sad and embarassing, we look like prats


David Davis

It seems all the 12 dudes arrested on suspicion of alleged terrorist offences have been released. They may well be totally innocent: time will of course tell.

Either we here are not very good at this sort of stuff, and have fluffed something bad, which is historically inconceivable,  or else All-that-Quazzera is much, much cleverer than we think.

In either case, don’t the UK’s Muslims start to think they are being set up by a power-crazy, success-hungry socialist government, which has not their, or our, interests at heart?

  1. Have just notified this alert to Englishman and LUC:

    Sorry, this is perhaps ‘off topic’, but you may want to keep an eye on this EU mucking about with internet ‘packaging’:

  2. Thank you for that, I will say something earth-shattering tonight,

  3. Anna R says it all may be it bit of a false alar(u)m and is looking into it.

    Jeff Rense IS a sort of all-in news site….

    Is/are (a) “real foul ball(s) and (a) false alarm(s)!”

    (This especially fitted Ted Kennedy and then The Clintons back in the day…AND that Godawful “Christer” G W Bush.

    (It is also not untrue of messrs Michael Jackson and “Karli” Rove and…the chlamydous Madonna.)

    My mother used to say it about RAF guys with fake accents passing themselves off in London in 1940, as Polish refugee pilots. (She made no mention of the chlamydia part as of course that was simply not on back in those halcyon old days of the syphilis.)

  5. Waterboarding. Slamming into walls. Excruciating physical positions. The United States tortured detainees after September 11, 2001. Make sure this does not happen again. Call on the President to create a non-partisan commission to investigate the torture and abuse of detainees. Help protect America’s national security and re-establish its standing in the world.

    We call on the President of the United States to establish an independent, non-partisan commission to examine and report publicly on torture and cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment of detainees in the period since September 11, 2001. The commission, comparable in stature to the 9/11 Commission, should look into the facts and circumstances of such abuses, report on lessons learned, and recommend measures that would prevent any future abuses. We believe that the commission is necessary to reaffirm America ’s commitment to the Constitution, international treaty obligations, and human rights. The report issued by the commission will strengthen U.S. national security and help to re-establish America ’s standing in the world.
