Bombin' those we don't like

There's been a bit of talk about a leak to London't Daily Mirror of a document recording a conversation between Bush and Tony Blair in which Blair persuaded Bush not to bomb Al-Jazeera's headquarters in Doha, Qatar. I can't tell if it's really credible or not, but I keep wondering if there might be a mix-up. The US did bomb Al-Jazeera in Baghdad--just a little bit more than a year before the alleged conversation on 16 April 2004. Perhaps the fact that it had already happened once before makes it much less shocking that he'd be thinking about doing it a second time around.

To be honest, I can't see Bush giving an order to have fighter jets fly over Qatar where the biggest U.S. military base outside the U.S. is located and then bomb a private tv station with reporters and journalists as the only casualties.

But then again 4 years ago I couldn't see Bush giving an order to invade Iraq.
