Bush Said To Propose Bombing al-Jazeera

That's what the Mirror is saying anyway. According to the British newspaper, a "Top Secret" memo from the British prime minister's office shows that US president George W. Bush planned to bomb the satellite TV station Al Jazeera (owned by the Qatari government, a key US ally) and that Tony Blair talked him out of it.
We may eventually find out whether this really happened as there is increasing pressure on the British government to release the five page transcript of that conversation that took place between the two leaders during talks in April last year, when Blair visited Bush in Washington.
If that's true, we have yet to grasp the full scale of Bush's careless stupidity!
