The bodyguard was Dodi's personal bodyguard...Princess Di had no security
of her own with her. That is why most of the blame lies with Buckingham
Palace. Diane should have been driven by Buckingham Palace Security and
should have had a lead and chase car. She should have gone out the front,
and not have snuck out the back. Adequate security could have cleared a path
out the front, and the lead and chase car would have kept the motocycles
at a distance. Afterall, the paparazzi knew Di and Dodi's destination.
There was no "outrunning" them.
P.S. As the posts wander further and further from the somewhat relevant
car safety aspect of the crash, I think now would be a good time to
move this discussion of the list.
