The point is you cant blame the firearms officers involved. The country had just witnessed their first suicide bombers and soon after another failed attempt. The people who should be held accountable is the command and control officer. The officer on the ground is told a bomber is on the train stop him at all costs. He cant hesitate or BANG the train is gone. The person on the radio who authorised this or the person who informed them of the risk must have a long hard look at themselves. I believe from the press(standfast the replies) it was the first Special Rec Regt's first live op. The thought of prosecuting the firearms officers is laughable, I didn't see President Blair getting prosectuted for sending us into Iraq on a very blatant liar, possibly by the same people no less and getting charged with 114 british deaths and counting.
