Tony Blair has accused the Daily Mail of “utter hypocrisy” after the newspaper criticised him over the case of a British man who became a suicide bomber on behalf of Islamic State.
Jamal al-Harith, a former Guantanamo Bay inmate, blew himself up in Mosul, Iraq, earlier this week.The Manchester-born man was picked up by US forces in Afghanistan in 2001 and imprisoned.However he was released in 2004 after Blair’s government lobbied the US to return him to the UK. Harith later received £1m in compensation.
A classic case of pot and kettle. Tone doesn't "do" irony.
