Peter Kilfoyle is asking some interesting questions about George Bush’s alleged plans to bomb the Arabic television station al-Jazeera. The best account in print comes from Richard Norton-Taylor in The Guardian. Did Blair discuss the bombing at a meeting at the White House in April 2004? Did he talk the US President out of it? Either way, surely we have the right to know. I have heard an interesting suggestion that when questions were first asked about this event, UK government officials were planning an outright denial. How could they possibly pull this off? Because apparently Bush discussed using a missile, so it wasn’t strictly speaking a bomb he intended to use.
