Need to Know?

Well it seems we shall be given a "Narrative of Events" written by a civil servant to draw a line under the July 7th London Bombings. While I do believe an awful lot of money is wasted on needless public inquiries I don't think this will be one of them. While it may be helpful to the victims families to understand what happened on the day my main interest would be understanding how 3 British born men became radicalised to the point of becoming suicide bombers. It would also be good to examine the role of the security services and if things could be improved (as well as what wouldn't of made a difference). Of course it could be that a report written by a top senior servant and signed off by the government will be an in-depth impartial spin free document - but we have been here before.
