Bloody betrayal

In this furious denunciation, military historian Max Hastings argues that ministers have contemptuously lied about Afghanistan - leaving our desperately undermanned army to make good Blair's bad cheques in blood
Just before leaving for my first trip to Vietnam in 1970, I telephoned a veteran correspondent for advice. "Just remember," he said, "they lie, they lie, they lie."
By "they", of course, he meant American politicians, diplomats and commanders, and he was absolutely right.

Well worth a read, as is anything he (Max Hastings) writes.
