First of all this gives the UK impetus to reverse the patently unfair and US biased extradition treatise that was signed against the will or
knowledge of the British public and that biases the entire system in favour of the US, woolly haired up your arse Boris is not going to fix it though
but I hope I am wrong on that.
Second it suggests the US was doing something it should not have been inside the UK it's closest ally, nothing new there they have stored nuclear
warheads without our OFFICIAL consent, held onto areas in supposedly closed down air bases notably underground facility's and many other such
Thirdly it shows we should NOT trust the US implicitly was we have as the virtual unofficial 51st state of the US or as we called it the largest
aircraft carrier in the US navy, about time we started to regain our own Position in the world and stop acting like a geriatric hanging onto a
grandkid that hates us apparently.
If the US is going to play dirty with us then we should move them onto an equal standing with OTHER foreign allies and no longer offer them
Sadly that is not how it work's since the city of London is there off shore piggy bank and our governments are up the city's arse so what the city
says is what goes - very democratic since the city basically hardly benefits the British people at all and only artificially inflates our GDP over our
real GDP which if you take the city away is rather a lot smaller.
That said with the EU trying to drive a wedge between the UK and the US by sabotaging those same city of London institutions AND with an old codger
in the white house (I am all for older leaders so long as they remember today may be the day God call's them and start to care about the kid's of
there nations but not if they are all for the money men) that is trying to force us to undemocratically reverse Brexit telling us HE not the British
people HE wants us in Europe well things may work out very differently indeed.
The UK and US will always have a special relationship we are family after all but sometimes family's have fallings out and the US behaviour were this
woman is concerned has turned a lot of the UK public's stomach's.
You know what makes this even more of a travesty, she would likely have been given a driving ban, a suspended sentence and possibly a fine that is
much, much smaller than she could have been hit by in the US and Harry's family even if the had sued for compensation would never have been awarded
anywhere near the level of pay out they would have been given in the US in a similar case, basically petty change covered by her employers and her
refusal to face charges has now blown her cover, someone was not thinking this out and has made a mess of it now permanently destroying her field
agent value which would have remained completely intact had they just played the UK system as they should have and at least let Harry's parent's have
a sense of justice done and an apology from her not that it would have brought there boy back.
So to put it mildly whoever made these decisions is an idiot, no literally an idiot, they have turned an accident into an international incident,
upset there closest ally like it does not matter and blown there agent's cover irreparably.
Actually I am with Gortex on that, it may be an attempt in claiming she was a spy to try to smooth it over with the UK, not that we would not be
concerned since GCHQ is our agency that basically works for the NSA so close is there relationship, but we have had serious holes in our agency's in
the past and the US in there's so we don't share everything basically as that is in the interests of both party's but it has always been understood we
work for mutual benefit.
So if it is a cover story it is once again the work of an Idiot, it will complicate our relations with US intelligence agency's and give some the
reason to call for greater oversight of what our Allies agents and agency's are doing in our country, that may not even be made public but because of
such a claim we will be watching more closely, so yes an Idiot once again.
What happened to all those cold war agent's, these modern ones are not fit for purpose?.
The best spy agency in the world today and that is because it is still in a constant cutting edge game of life and death is Mossad, James Bond and
the fem fatale of fiction are useful in there element but most useful as distraction while the real agent's who you would not look at twice go about
there work undetected.
I would argue that yes pretty woman are useful but she was just slightly too attractive for the non descript type of role that an undercover agent's
really want's to have.
Thing's that would give a yank away, teeth too perfect (most nations have teeth that look more like Stonehenge than an architects rendering of a
polar ice berg) difficulty with local cuisine, language and mannerism unless they are trained properly and properly acclimatized by there handlers,
also the yank's tend to look - healthy - nothing like a poor complexion to help you go under, do a role too perfectly?.
But not all spy's are chosen for there acting ability or there blend in characteristics, memory, ability to indirectly yet minutely observe, in the
security industry I met officers that could give you details down to the button colour and size using just there peripheral vision, mine is a blur
theirs is something much more rare, I have met a guard who could drive perfectly with his windscreen completely misted over so thick I could not see a
thing through it a most disconcerting experience but he was perfectly comfortable with a misted windshield.
Spy's are sometimes nothing but observers.
Either way the US is no amateur unlike this debacle is making out so someone is just playing silly buggers in my opinion.
The fact is we do not want blood, we do not hate this stupid idiot of a driver who could not even drive on the CORRECT side of the road in the UK, we
are annoyed at what happened and sad for Harry's mum and dad.
But we are insulted by the US agency's responsible antic's on this, we do not want a souring of relations but we want an equal partnership or it is a
BAD partnership, we want to be respected and our laws respected.
As for the idea of this being tit for tat, no I don't believe it is but the US had not right moral, ethical or otherwise to try to extradite a
British AUTISTIC citizen to face a kangaroo court when they have such a vile judicial system and prison system, such unholy abuse of human right's and
as it was only to cover for the failings of morons that could not even password protect there vital data, also according to McKinnon he was not the
only one on those computers there were Chinese spies and other's all helping themselves to far more important information than the UFO's he was
I actually think the McKinnon case was an attempt at Damage control, if the US really left classified servers open to the world like that then
someone need's to be fired and even jailed over there for putting there national security at risk but in my opinion they were BAIT, bread crumb's to
lead foreign hackers into trap's and trace them and if not then I am thinking too highly of them which I hope for there sake I am not.
Mind you the Russians were that concerned about the West and Chinese hacking there systems that they went back to analogue
