    The Dubai Police Chief is obsessed with finding out "who done it." Well, that's easy to prove. Through a series of errors, Mr. M. contributed to his own assassination. The events which led to his premature death were primarily coordinated by himself, and into the trap he fell. The resounding Snap was his own fault. His friends are outraged and embarrassed, and perhaps a bit peeved at Mr. M's sloppy espionage. Of course, they will blame others. They will manipulate the facts. They will implicate anyone to save face. After all, Mr. M's carelessness has humiliated them greatly and implies some rethinking of their own clandestine activities. I am sure that if Mr. M could share with us a posthumous comment, It would be, "Oops." His premature departure is the direct result of his own actions for which he should be held accountable.
