Bleated, Insincere, Incomplete

In a letter to the Sunday Times in the 1920's T. E. Lawrence wrote:
"The people of Britain have been led in Mesopotamia into a trap from which it will be hard to escape with dignity and honour. They have been tricked into it by a steady withholding of information. The Baghdad communiques are belated, insincere, incomplete. Things have been far worse than we have been told, our administration more bloody and inefficient than the public knows. It is a disgrace to our imperial record, and may soon be too inflamed for ordinary cure. We are today not far from a disaster."
The important "Snatch" Land Rover equipment issue is now well in the news with the deaths yesterday of two British soldiers in the Helmand province of Afghanistan.
