From Blairwatch in Britain:
Remember the great liquid explosives terror plot?
The one that caused chaos in the world’s airports and cost the airlines millions?
The one described by ministers as “Mass murder on an unimaginable scale”. You know, blowing up planes with shampoo.
Yes, that one. The one where the mastermind, Rashid Rauf, the terrorist mastermind was controlling the operation from Pakistan.
Well, the terror charges have been dropped.
Funnily enough, this news hasn’t been published in any UK newspaper.
Craig Murray is on the case with some startling developments in this grotesque attempt to frighten the public with a non-existent plot.
And for this hysteria, breastfeeding mothers and airline passengers carrying shampoo or fluid toothpaste were and are harassed …
Craig Murray was dismissed by Blair as ambassador to Uzbekistan for opposing torture there.
Later, he opposed a massacre of demonstrators there.
