Al Jazeera Bush Bombing Memo: Official Secrets Act Trial of Two British Bureaucrats Resumed Today


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.
More soon.
