'Understandable human error' was not in quotes for the fun of it. It was described that way by the police. However, I must say that it doesn't look like a routine operation -- contrary to the Israeli way of dealing in comparable situations. I remember a remark in one of the first articles about Menendes' death, namely that the Britsish policemen acted after the example of the Israelis. Israelis suffer from terror attacks, true -- so do the Palestinians. Consistently not following the rules yourself disqualifies you from criticizing the other.
