Daily Kos: Bush planned to bomb Arab ally

Our president thinks democracy should be spread by bombing the press?

: “PRESIDENT Bush planned to bomb Arab TV station al-Jazeera in friendly Qatar, a ‘Top Secret’ No 10 memo reveals.

But he was talked out of it at a White House summit by Tony Blair, who said it would provoke a worldwide backlash.

A source said: ‘There’s no doubt what Bush wanted, and no doubt Blair didn’t want him to do it.’ Al-Jazeera is accused by the US of fuelling the Iraqi insurgency.”

Does Qatar – an ally – pose an imminent threat to the United States? Does Al Jazeera? No and No. Yet President Bush thinks they deserve to be bombed? Wow.
