Drudge reports ("reports"?) that American military commanders banned their personnel from entering London. One of Wonkette's Fleet Street operatives writes it makes sense that these troops were "told not to venture into the terrorist-ruled, bombed-out blackened shell of a capital city that is London." But, he continues, it "is quite odd, given that the Pentagon has never been shy about letting US troops amble into the terrorist-ruled, bombed-out blackened shell of a capital city that is Baghdad, but there you go."
