"This would never have happened at the White House"

Apparently, this sort of thing would never have happened at the White House.

So said a senior figure in the Bush security cabal, quoted on the front page of one of the newspapers this morning – but damn me if I can’t figure out which one now I come to write it up. Anyway, the point is that they are wrong, wrong, wrong. And someone who is so stunningly arrogant they think they can get away with a lie like that – or is so stunningly stupid they don’t think to check their facts before opening their mouth – seriously thought they’d be allowed to deploy miniguns in London? As in the things you stick on tanks to kill people? Oh, I see, it’s the nice miniguns, which merely protect presidents from the dangers of people who don’t agree with them. I feel much better.
