I was shocked to hear that the man killed by police was in fact totally innocent.
Although it may not seem so, we are at war.
In the heat of the moment when emotions are on a knife edge, mistakes are made.
My heart goes out to all the friends and relatives of Jean Charles de Menezes. A totally innocent man in the wrong place at the wrong time. We must not blame our security forces for this blunder. It is the terrorists and them alone who are responsible for his death. We must in no way lessen our fight against these barbarians.
May your God be with you Jean Charles de Menezes.
Let us hope your death was not in vain.
