A brave rescue attempt which, sadly, went wrong.

There should be no doubt that the attempt to rescue Linda Norgrove was the right and proper thing to do.  No government worthy of the name should abandon its citizens to their captors.  Lessons will be learned but the U.K. and U.S. authorities should not blame themselves for trying.  See The Guardian 12th October.

The Guardian 29th October reported that Linda Norgrove's parents refused to blame the Americans.

See Statement in Parliament by William Hague - Foreign Secretary - 2nd December 2010.
