The buck stops here

So, a large organisation has, probably inadvertently, mislead the public. The management of this organisation stuck by the initial report, whereas they should have launched an investigation into the report's accuracy. Having failed to do this, the men at the top fell upon their swords.

Hmmm. I can think of another large organisation which might have mislead us. Our government. One might charitably believe that this was also inadvertent, but mislead we have been. And we went to war, and a lot of people have been killed. I wonder if the men at the top will do the honourable thing this time?

I doubt it.

I must say, the Hutton Report looks totally one sided to me. The government was always given the benefit of the doubt, but the BBC never was.
