Frihedens forkæmper

Bush wanted Aljazeera bombed, læser vi hos - Aljazeera, som citerer det britiske dagblad Daily Mail, som påstår, at Blair talked Bush out of bombing:
Al-Jazeera had sparked the anger of the US administration by broadcasting video messages from al Qaida head Osama bin Laden and leaders of the insurgency in Iraq, as well as showing footage of the bodies of US servicemen and Iraqi civilians killed in fighting
Former defence minister Peter Kilfoyle called for the document to be made public.

"I believe that Downing Street ought to publish this memo in the interests of transparency, given that much of the detail appears to be in the public domain," he told the Press Association.

"I think they ought to clarify what exactly happened on this occasion. If it was the case that President Bush wanted to bomb al-Jazeera in what is after all a friendly country, it speaks volumes and it raises questions about subsequent attacks that took place on the press that wasn't embedded with coalition forces."
Tortur, plyndring, skamløse løgne som påskud for en erobringskrig, hvor alt galt lige fra starten - og nu ville Bush så i tilgift (om historien holder) bombe hovedstaden i et allieret land for at komme en kritisk TV-station til livs? Nogle gange overgår virkeligheden fantasien.
