Britain’s “Daily Mirror” newspaper has found an “unnamed source” who claims that George W. Bush wanted to bomb Arab television network al-Jazeera, but was talked out of it by Tony Blair.
Al-Jazeera is best known for their “two-fer Tuesday” back to back airings of al-Qaeda messages, including Osama bin Laden and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi turning up regularly like a radical Islamic green grocers.
The Arab network isn’t assuming the information is correct before commenting on it– which places them a notch above some U.S. mainstream media outlets.
What al-Jazeera does say, however, is what they’ll think “if the story is true”.
“If the report is correct, then this would be both shocking and worrisome not only to al-Jazeera but to media organisations across the world.
“It would cast serious doubts in regard to the US administration’s version of previous incidents involving al-Jazeera’s journalists and offices.”
These guys get bloody tapes via daily Fed Ex from the Middle East’s most certifiably insane spiral-eyed nut-cases, take the deliveries, and put them on the air, and something Bush probably didn’t even say is potentially “shocking” and “worrisome”?
Too bad Bush can’t receive the same “neutrality” al-Jazeera offers to al-Qaeda. Must be an “al” thing.
