Now that Tony Blair has officially endorsed the Falklands War as a good thing perhaps its time to look at some of the spin of the time. The big lie (possibly) was that Britain pulled off the whole operation itself. However some USAF Tanker crews that I met at the time insisted that they were involved, none of the histories I've read aknowledges this. (Before you ask why I don't post this question on the RAF site, the answer is why bother, no one ever puts anything intersting up there, you might as well be reading the RAF News) Another question concerns the loss of the Atlantic Conveyer. Some matelots I knew at the time said the Conveyor was actually sacrificed to save one of the carriers, when an exocet was spotted inbound the Conveyor was turned beam on to it so that the exocet would lock to it instead of the carrier.
