t r u t h o u t - Juan Cole | Did Bush Plan to Bomb al-Jazeera?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: almost certainly, if you line up the chronology, and if the person who leaked the British memo didn't make it up, and if we can somehow get our hands on that actual document (re-leak?) to be sure.

Point: This is plausible. That, in itself, is horrifying.

I doubt very seriously that the "Official Secrets Act" will be enough to prevent this document from getting out. However, it just goes to show why (when properly implemented) our Constitution is really a remarkable document. Once the Pentagon Papers were leaked, the Supreme Court ruled that the constitution prevented authorities from blocking their publication. This memo and many memos past have been blocked from publication in the UK because they have neither a constitution nor a first ammendment thereof.

I am waiting for the memo that shows he was trying to bomb CBS.
