We did it refers. Killed Linda Norgrove, that is. You can listen to Hague make excuses, if you can bear it. The foreign secretary said that with the agreement of the prime minister he had agreed to a rescue bid because of fears that Ms Norgrove’s life was in “grave danger”. Well yes, indeed her life was in great danger, from the Americans. Who said that yes, they did it, but since they were the Good Guys and the other side were the Bad Guys, clearly it wasn’t actually their fault, it was the other guys fault.
Oddly, although Hague says “a number of soldiers had been disciplined” (not for killing her of course, but for the heinous crime of not telling anyone they had thrown the grenade) the Us military link says nowt about this; so we are left to imagine the seriousness of the “discipline”.
