Blair and David Frost
19th November, 2006
I’ve listened to and read the speech the PM gave to David Frost on the Al Jazeera channel.
I can’t see what all the fuss is about. What was he supposed to say when Frost said, “But, so far it’s been … pretty much of a disaster.”
It HAS been a disaster in as far as the deaths caused by insurgencies and in coalition troops, as well as in the time it is taking to stabilise the situation.
That DOES NOT MEAN that he thinks the decision to go in was a disaster.
That will not be known for some time yet.
