Pretty much so snoopster - 26/04/2004 12:04:24 PM

Anyone and everyone is going to be slamming him trying to get their five minutes of fame.

It's also the most exposed he's been

Still I would like to see what they said, what policies they were criticising and whether they were actually ambassadors (i.e. the top dog in each country) in which case it is very serious, or rather just any old people that worked there - the article isn't very clear at all and flip-flops. And of course doesn't mention any names.

It is fairly vague, the impression I have is that at least three are former ambassadors - of Tel Aviv, Bagdhad and Greece. The others I don't know about. The BBC usually updates as time passes, they tend to get the stories out first (in my experience) and add more detail as it is available, so they may add more details about the people involved later.
