Private Snafu

After 3 British soldiers were killed by a roadside bomb, the BBC reports:

World affairs correspondent Paul Wood said an official announcement about the "dangerous retreat" to the airport would not be made until after the event to reduce the risk of attacks from insurgents. And the BBC understands that British soldiers are expected to move from Basra city altogether to the airport "in the next few weeks over a single weekend".

That's a direct quote and while it doesn't actually say when the "dangerous retreat" will take place, it narrows things down some. Perhaps it makes no difference in that the insurgents can figure things out for themselves, but it does provoke laughter, when it doesn't provoke tears.

Wasn't there a survey that demonstrated that an inordinately high percentage of BBC employees have a name that contains the word "Mohammad" in it somewhere? Why is there always surprise, in that case, when it appears that the BBC is working FOR the jihadists, up to and including working AGAINST British soldiers?

You'd think someone in the British government might want to take a look at this deliberate sell-out of British interests ... but then how many clerks at all levels of the British government now also bear the name Mohammad?
