Operation: Ferryman is botched

It has been reported by the BBC, that authorities in Iran have now denied that singer Chris deBurgh is to play a live concert in Tehran, according to an Iranian news agency yesterday. The Music Office of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance had not received a request for the show, nor issued a permit. Official permission is required to stage a concert in the country.

Naturally this blew my aforementioned cover and I had to make a hasty exit!

It's been quite some time since I've been part of a botched operation. No doubt a grilling from the Joint Chiefs is on the way. Wish me luck.

Dammit Colonel you screwed up,I turned down the Iranians two years ago when they invited me over to show Valour..starring the Colonel , you could have used the far more convincing cover of actually being a star of the movie than that twats roadie...questions will have to be asked..still how bizarre is it when de burgh can't get into the country and I Turned down an invite...I would say that makes me better than Chris ,but then again , aren't we all better than Chris!

Lt.Col Does this mean that you will not be resuming your old rank anytime soon?.

@ Civvy
No, I think it means he's getting ready to announce his imminent 0-4 ranking (see also the story on Cmdr Bentley).

Sithy, do you mean, I'll have to refer to the Lt.Col as Maj from now on?

Redjanet, we operate a strict non-stroking the Lt.Col's ego on this blog.

You really don't want to know what happened to the last redhead who innocently complimented the Lt.Col. ;)

civvy, you are so my favorite commentator. When are you going to get your own spin off? Or do you already have one and I'm not cool enough?

Connie, in the words of the grat Han Solo, "I know". ;)

Alas my job inside the Matrix allows me no time for such frivolous endeavours as my own blog.

However, if I did have one or ever started one, of course you'd be cool enough.
