Buried news


What ever happened to Alex Allan—former head of the JIC who on July 3rd was found in his apartment unconscious and covered in blood? The last news reports about Allan around July 10th noted that there were “positive signs of recovery” (BBC News, July 10) after he had been in a coma for 10 days, and that there was no sign of foul play (Daily Mail Online, July 11). Whitehall sources suggested that he had contracted pnuemonia, however (Telegraph, July  6):

Dr Keith Prowse, chairman of the British Lung Foundation, said: “If it’s pneumonia it is likely to be secondary to something else. And a significant quantity of blood is more likely to come from the gut than the chest.”

Also the Telegraph reported that:

Government sources suggest Mr Allan was “too high profile” to be a target for foreign intelligence agencies but others have suggested this is exactly what could make him vulnerable.

There could be many innocent explanations, but the silence is very odd.
