Well, I couldn't be sure where the blood comes from; if it's from the continental US, that wouldn't surprize me a bit. We have "blood banks" here where people can go and sell their blood and plasma. Usually, the people there are not the elite of our society by any means.
So, sorry about the "bad blood"; perhaps you could organize a blood drive for the troopers over there or see if there is one already established and go donate a pint or two.

The Telegraph article doesn't say the blood was contaminated.
It simply says that the blood wasn't properly certified. A lapse in quality control for sure. But the risks are low. Of course the Arab press twists it up a bit.

well said. these things happen sometimes; just look at all those who cought hepatitis and hiv in Scotland in the 80's through contaminated blood. it took years for the british goverment to own up to it and those people are still fighting for compensation.

so who are we to judge our allies; they helped with the best intentions
