Points of note. 1. He said 'elicopters!!! 2. Spent much of the interview talking angrily about the "meedya" and various alleged "misrepresentations" and so on....deserves everything he gets in my opinion now. 3. Told a lie. Said 9/11 was down to the-then Afghan government (ie the Taliban) to justify initial involvement in Afghanistan. Untrue. 4. Will not have an excuse for British involvement as of next week once the elections are over....will this lead to a change in posture (defensive rather than active) to keep casualties down, or will President Karzai lobby effectively and publicly for the UK to continue to act as the Afghan National Army as it is now?
