ABSOLUTE MUST-READ ON BUTLER-REPORT BY DAVID AARONOVITCH
In a way I think it's almost superfluous to link to Aaronovitch's pieces because he is easily one of the best commentary journalists in the Britain and if you don't read him regularly yet: why not? You have to read all of his piece in today's Observer
, but I'll leave with this quote anyway and the evermore odious Douglas Hurd:
After Rwanda and Bosnia, however, there were no Huttons, no Butlers to scrutinise such massive foreign policy failures, and no one suggested that Hurd should visit the graves of those who died as a consequence of his studied inaction. Which is just as well, because there are too many of them.
