[casi] Euphamistic Dossier.

Dear Glen & List,

Just to report, very briefly, that the Radio 4's 'Today' program, both
before & after 8 a.m., dealt with this case of "wholesale lifting", of
a govern-mental dossier.

The 29-year-old Californian Ph.D. student, Ibrahim al-Marashi, was
interviewed. Afterwards, Geoff Hoon spoke (the usual stuff?). Then Glenda
Jackson was interviewed, claiming this was yet another example of government
"misleading", which, she said, was a euphamism for lying.Seems the 'James'
info was 6 years old, i.e. also 'old hat'.

Well deserved congratulations to Glen, & others in CASI, who have refused to
have the spin-wool pulled over their eyes!

Could the dossier, distributed by Tony Blair's office of "experts" on Iraq
(assisted by a modicum of plagiarism), be described as an "Infra-
structure bundle of Concealment, Deception & Intimidation?" - Bremner, Bird
& Fortune, we await you!


Bert Gedin (Birmingham).
