A Tale of Two Men

This story is in most of the UK papers but the words below are from The Independent.

adam ingram

This man lied.

“A former Labour defence minister [Adam Ingram] was forced to admit yesterday that he misled MPs when he denied that British soldiers had hooded Iraqi detainees during interrogations.”

“ ….. Mr Ingram was copied in on a memo revealing that the Iraqi [Baha Mousa] was hooded for a total of nearly 24 hours during 36 hours spent in UK military custody before he died.”


This man died.


  1. We can as much expect our politicians to reward themselves honestly as trust them to utter a truth of any inconvenience.

  2. MTG Indeed.

    What a brilliant description!

    Thank you.

  3. A couple from me from last year.

    Just finding them again I noticed your comment :-)
