Wrong man

The BBC report on the Intelligence and Security Committee's second report on the July 7th bombings has a case of mistaken identity:
The committee's chairman, Kim Howells MP, said: "Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Those judgements were made at the time and, having gone in detail through all of the details, we cannot find any reason to criticise the actions that were taken at the time."
Having seen the ISC press conference on the t.v. I'm sure it was Tory MP Michael Mates who said this, not Howells, who has quite a strong welsh accent.

Still, the BBC webpage has a column by its home affairs correspondent Daniel Casciani about the failure to identify Mohammad Sidique Khan:
For MI5, knowing what someone is up to is more important than exactly who they are.
