      picked up the story originally and then either laid off or backtracked on the claims that the emails were edited. Others call for the original emails to be released before claiming they were edited can be verified, which Britam wont do. Did not mean to distract from this diarists point but your comment about not trusting the intelligence agencies and its contractors jogged my memory of the story.

      The whole 'Intelligence will soon show that Assad is responsible' remark pretty much shows the books are cooked. Apparently intercepted phone calls are now what is being cited as proof the Syria gov is responsible. Go figure eh?

        Reminds me of the Futurama bit: "You can't just have the characters say how they're feeling! That makes me angry!"
