Yeah, right, an accident. . . .
Strange that the BBC didn’t name the person who found them.
Also strange that the top civil servant wasn’t named.
If it really was Top Secret, wouldn’t it be wiser to use a code word rather than big red letters on the front?
I suppose we hadn’t had the Al Qaida/terrorist mantra pumped at us for a while, gotta keep up the fear factor.
There was a need to tie Iraq to Al Qaida (western invention, doesn't really exist) to try to gain support for operations over there.
We should be due an “Al Qaida Training camps in Iran” soon.
One moment we'll be reducing our troop count over there. Then we're told that the Iraq security forces are inept due to a document being "left" on a train. Soon you'll get the "We can't pull out yet, the Iraqi forces still need our "support".
I expect someone to bleat the "oooh, you conspiracy theorist" soon. I expect nothing less from the sheeple. Go ahead believe your mainstream government sponsored media. Or do a little reading of Orwell's life, he worked in a department at the BBC modifying news media for public consumption during the war.
