De Menezes shooting in London: Reportedly Sir Ian Blair told the world that the police had shot a dangerous terrorist, while at the same time Sir Ian's closest aides already knew that the police had shot an innocent man.

"Paddick claims that at 3.15pm on that Friday he was told by two of Sir Ian's closest aides, Chief Superintendent Moir Stewart and Chief of Staff Caroline Murdoch, that the dead man was a 'Brazilian tourist'... Minutes later, said Paddick, Sir Ian told a Press conference that the shooting was directly linked to the operation to catch the failed bombers – a statement that Paddick felt did not tell the whole truth." - De Menezes shooting investigation 'like an episode of Fawlty Towers'
