Putting the Lie to Tony Blair

The following report by Reuters puts the lie to British Prime Minister Tony Bair's pronouncments about progress in Iraq:
Britain is moving most civilian staff from its consulate in the southern Iraqi city of Basra to the airport because of safety concerns due to the threat of mortar attacks, the foreign office said on Monday.

This is actually old news (2006).

Well, at least he fought the terrorists 'there' so they won't attack the Brits at home.

Of course, I presume he's also declared the London Subway to be an Iraqi territory, and withdrawn his troops from there, too.
