What are we not being told?
is interesting are the reports on what intelligence the west has on the
chemical weapons attacks. One of the papers, OK it is the Daily Mail,
quotes a US "official" saying that it is no slam dunk that Assad
authorised the attacks. There are quotes from the JIC report given to
David Cameron which asserts that there are 14 previous attacks by Assad
and that in all probability this latest one was from him as well. It
makes me wonder if we knew about 14 previous attacks why we did nothing
then and suddenly feel the need to do something. I do not normally
believe in conspiracy theories, governments are generally too
incompetent to arrange anything remotely sophisticated, but I am
beginning to wonder about what we are not being told.
I am a retired Consulting IT Specialist. I have been married to Julia for 45 years and we are blessed with four children; David, Andrew, Lawrie and Hélèna. Not forgetting the "other half's"; Gaew married to Andrew, Lawrie's partner Emma and Hélèna's husband Sam.
In addition we have a grandson - Henry Thomas, son of Lawrie and Emma. Henry was three in April - time flies
I am now ordained as a Permanent Deacon in the RC Church - date of ordination 8 June 2013 so am now in my third year of ministry.
