Red faces in three capitals
British spies involved in operations involving Pakistan and its nationals seem to suffer the unfortunate fate of being unmasked in newspaper reports. According to Proto Thema, a Greek newspaper, the chief of British intelligence in Athens was involved in the mysterious kidnapping and roughing up of 28 Pakistani immigrants. The British government is angry and has ordered its newspapers from naming the ‘diplomat’ involved. The Greek government is angry and has excoriated Proto Thema for endangering national security. The Pakistani government too will soon be angry and make righteous noises about hurt innocence.
