How strange it is that every time that we might be close to hearing from Rashid Rauf about the still unproven Heathrow liquid bomb plot, for which American claims still form the main basis, something happens to him. This time, permanently. He is gone now, but don't forget your 100ml liquid limit and your clear plastic bag when headed to airport. Who are we to doubt the George Bush version of the intentions of a dead man?
UPDATE APRIL 2009: Rauf may not be dead after all. Note the extent to which his alleged career as a terrorist as been associated with bizarre security lapses and pre-empted investigations.
