t r u t h o u t - Blair 'Convinced Bush' Not to Launch Strike at al-Jazeera

This is beyond the pale. Can you imagine? Think of it. The Al Jazeera stations were in Qatar, a strong ally of ours. And Bush thought it would be a good idea to BOMB their studios because he disagreed with their reporting??

Blair 'Convinced Bush' Not to Launch Strike at al-Jazeera: " Tony Blair had to persuade US President George Bush not to launch a military strike on the studios of TV station Al-Jazeera.

New reports claim the two leaders debated an attack on the station which has broadcast video messages from al-Qaida head Osama bin Laden and leaders of the insurgency in Iraq, as well as clips of dead British and US soldiers.

There have been calls for Downing Street to publish the transcript of their conversation.

According to sources it records Mr Bush suggesting that he might order the bombing of Al-Jazeera's studios in Qatar."
