"Context" of Climategate e-mails only makes it worse, says scientist who exposed "hockey stick"

Steve McIntryre, who discovered the shenanigans going on behind the now infamous "hockey stick" graph that purported to show a huge increase in Global Warming in the recent past, points out that the "context" in which Global Warming alarmists are taking refuge to protect them from charges of data fraud and misinformation only worsens their case that the e-mails really aren't damaging.

Is the there any place left for scoundrels to hide?
Much recent attention has been paid to the email about the “trick” and the effort to “hide the decline”. Climate scientists have complained that this email has been taken “out of context”. In this case, I’m not sure that it’s in their interests that this email be placed in context because the context leads right back to a meeting of IPCC authors in Tanzania, raising serious questions about the role of IPCC itself in “hiding the decline” in the Briffa reconstruction.
