Sorry for being AWOL folks. I’ve been lining up some interesting stuff to share with you shortly.
But the trial of two British bureaucrats, David Keogh and Leo O’Connor — charged with leaking the contents of a secret document to the media — has resumed today.
It is alleged that there are ten lines in a five page memo capturing a discussion between British Prime Minister Tony Blair and President George W. Bush in which Blair is attempting to dissuade Bush from his interest in bombing Al Jazeera’s Doha, Qatar headquarters.
I will have more on this later, but a good source of someone watching this matter closely is BlairWatch.
