It'd pretty much disgusting that the Torygraph will not post any more comments to this article.
They allowed another comment by "Praetorian" but, so far, have not published two of mine. I have written to the Telegraph thus:
I wish to complain in the strongest possible terms about what can only be a deliberate stance on the part of the moderator of this piece to favour "Praetorian" and exclude contrary comment. Whether intentional or not, the claims made by Praetorian are misleading and false, running contrary to the official records of operations in Helmand. I have twice sought to introduce the official records and on neither occasion has the moderator allowed its publication. See here: http://defenceoftherealm.blogspot.com/2 ... -time.html
This, where the pretence is of an open forum, effectively amounts to censorship and a quite deliberate distortion of the record, expecially as you have now closed down the comments and are allowing no further input.
