Bush Bomb AlJazeera

Bush Wanted to Bomb AlJazeera

Bush planned to bomb Arab TV station al-Jazeera , a "Top Secret" No 10 memo reveals.

But he was talked out of it at a White House summit by Tony Blair, who said it would provoke a worldwide backlash.

A source said: "There’s no doubt what Bush wanted, and no doubt Blair didn’t want him to do it." Al-Jazeera is accused by the US of fuelling the Iraqi insurgency.

The attack would have led to a massacre of innocents on the territory of a key ally, enraged the Middle East and almost certainly have sparked bloody retaliation.

A source said last night: "The memo is explosive and hugely damaging to Bush.

"He made clear he wanted to bomb al-Jazeera in Qatar and elsewhere.

Blair replied that would cause a big problem.

"There’s no doubt what Bush wanted to do – and no doubt Blair didn’t want him to do it."

Washington Denied The Story :

The White House characterized as "outlandish" Tuesday a British newspaper report that President Bush once discussed with Prime Minister Tony Blair bombing the headquarters of Arabic-language television network Al-Jazeera
