British Consul-General killed in terror attack: 27 dead, 450 wounded in Istanbul blasts: "Truck bombs killed at least 27 people and wounded nearly 450 in attacks on the British consulate and a London-based bank on Thursday - days after a bloody terrorist strike on Istanbul synagogues. The worst terror bombings in Turkey's history coincided with US President George W. Bush's trip to Britain and were blamed on al-Qaeda."

It calls to mind the statement made in the British Parliament by Kenneth Clarke(?) MP during the war debate before the attack on Iraq: 'the next time a big bomb goes off in a major Western city, how far will this policy have contributed to that?'
