I can't help but wonder whether David Miliband will feel the brunt of all this. After his disastrous visit to India, and his churlish "War on Terror article in the Guardian, the Foreign Secretary's stock is at an all-time low. Indeed, that Guardian article now looks even worse in retrospect. Given the view that it was a cheap parting shot at the Bush administration - and an attempt to get into the new administration's good books - the reports that the intelligence threat "still applies under President Obama" are embarrassing for Miliband. They develop the idea that Washington is waving two fingers at our Foreign Secretary and his worldview. All in all, if could give Brown a further excuse to serve up some cold, cold revenge.
