No 10 asked Army to delay Afghan attack until after Gordon Brown’s visit


Major-General Andrew MacKay claims that he was asked whether he could delay an attack on a Taliban stronghold until after Gordon Brown had visited the country.

Gen Mackay, who is believed to have resigned over the Government’s handling of the Afghan war, said before he quit that Britain’s contribution to the war was being undermined by a “tragic failure of leadership”.

In interviews with the British Army Review and the book, Operation Snakebite, before he resigned, the 52-year-old said there was a “growing realisation that what we had taken on was in excess of what we had anticipated”.
