Another War on Terror “victim” writes a blogger

May 2, 2009

Antony Loewenstein writes on his blog:

Many nations followed the US lead and conducted their own “war on terror”.

Take Sri Lanka. This release on the country’s Defence Ministry website about the recent visit of British Foreign Secretary David Milliband is about as compelling as North Korean PR:

The Defence Secretary said it was up to the British delegation to decide whether it should believe what a terrorist group said or what a responsible officer of a legitimate government told them. “The choice is yours,” he said.

This New York Times editorial is not too bad.
