The President and Al-Jezeera

For those of you who don't know, there are reports coming out of England that President Bush discussed plans to bomb Al-Jezeera headquarters in Qatar. The reports indicate that British Prime Minister Tony Blair talked President Bush out of it. I'm not personally sure what to make of this, as a good two thirds of the proof consists in saying that the Bush Administration has it in for Al-Jezeera. Which they do.

But for a good review of this possibility, you might check out this article at Salon by Juan Cole. Personally I am going to wait for more solid information before making up my mind one way or the other.
