A nice bit of ambiguity.

That being said, I have to go and buy a hat and then take it off to the BBC for this bit of headline genius:

PM challenges Pakistan on terror

There are so many ways to sum up that story, and some genius of a sub-editor has chosen probably the only one that could be misinterpreted as Gordon Brown saying to Pakistan, "Call those terrorists? Ha! You couldn't blow up an orange! Once again, Britain leads the world. You want carnage of innocents, you come to us."

Which, under the circumstances

"Around 40 per cent of CIA activity on homeland threats is now in the UK. This is quite unprecedented."

— would be rather apt.
