On September 10, 2005 the Daily Mail reported, "The head of security service MI5 has warned civil liberties may have to be eroded to protect British citizens from terrorist attacks. In a speech in the Netherlands, Dame Eliza Manningham-Buller said the suicide bomb attacks in London in July were a 'shock,' and that MI5 and police were 'disappointed we had not been able to prevent them'... She added: 'We also value civil liberties and wish to do nothing to damage these hard fought rights. But the world has changed and there needs to be a debate on whether some erosion of what we all value may be necessary to improve the chances of our citizens not being blown apart as they go about their daily lives.'"
