Killed by spin?

Not that long ago I mentioned a post on St Crispin’s blog about the Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters Regiment training for Afghanistan. The decision to add the battalion to 12 Brigade was initially declined forcing them to miss out on months of pre-deployment training. This was just after Tony Blair said that military commanders could have anything they needed to get the job done.

One of their soldiers has now been killed. Clearly I have no idea if the training delay cost this soldier his life but training is there for a reason and the Worcestershire & Sherwood Foresters got less than they deserved.
