The Bush Bombshell - Did the president propose to take out Al Jazeera? By Christopher�HitchensI remember reading about this, and thinking that it could not be true. Even Bush could not be that arrogant. But now, after what we have seen recently, with the "Spygate", I am not so sure anymore...
Tomorrow morning, in a court in London, two men will appear to face charges under Britain's Official Secrets Act. The first man, David Keogh, a former employee of the Cabinet Office, is accused of unlawfully handing a confidential memorandum to the second man, Leo O'Connor, a researcher for a former Labor member of Parliament, Tony Clarke.[...]The memorandum [...] describes a meeting at the White House on April 16, 2004, between President Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair. At that meeting [...] Bush mooted the idea of taking out the headquarters of Al Jazeera in Doha, Qatar.
