GOVERNMENT MINISTERS SHOULD BE REPONSIBLE FOR NIMROD CRASH, NOT RAF OFFICERS!
Two senior RAF officers could face criminal charges over their role in Britain's worst military disaster for nearly 30 years.
Air Commodore George Baber and Wing Commander Michael Eagles were blamed in an inquiry report for safety 'failings' that led to a spy plane exploding over Afghanistan. They are being investigated by RAF Police and could face criminal charges in civilian courts if the case is considered so serious it is handed over to the civilian police - and jail sentences if convicted.
All 14 servicemen on board fault-riddled Nimrod XV230 were killed when it blew up in mid-air after refuelling at Kandahar on November 2, 2006. The inquiry found that the crash was 'preventable' and criticised ministers, commanders and defence firms for 'incompetence, complacency and cynicism'.
SO WHY are the RAF officers being charged? The MOD CUTBACKS were the CAUSE OF THE CRASH, so whoever was the MINISTER IN CHARGE at the time along with PRIME MINISTER MUST BE BROUGHT TO COURT AND CHARGED WITH 14 DEATHS!
