No Need to Investigate Terrorist Attacks
Tony Blair will on Monday reject Conservative demands for a government inquiry into last week's London bomb attacks, insisting such a move would distract from the task of catching the perpetrators.
As police and security services on Sunday continued searching for the bombers - thought to be Islamist terrorists - Downing Street said the prime minister believed an inquiry now into the outrage which killed at least 49 people would be a "ludicrous diversion." Instead, in a statement to the Commons on Monday following last week's Group of Eight summit, Mr Blair is expected to focus on the direction the government must take to ensure future terrorism is defeated.
This is yet another eerie similarity to the reaction to 9/11 by the Bush administration. You may remember that immediately after 9/11 there were calls for an investigation, but that it was refused by the Bush administration for over 400+ days saying that it would be a diversion from the war on terror. While I do not want to assume that 7/7 is somehow similar to 9/11, it is quite unnerving to see that investigating a terrorist attack is not important yet again.
