Nasty stuff from the MoD

Comment is Free carries a blog piece from Rachel Reid, the Human Rights Watch researcher said to be involved in the alleged leaking of civilian casualty figures from Afghanistan. She complains that the "the MoD has whispered into the ear of the Sun" to drag her reputation through the mud "when I live in a country where a woman's reputation can mean her life".

The government showed in the case of David Kelly that it is quite prepared to humiliate anyone who crosses it, even if it puts their life at risk.
