It has been pretty well confirmed at this point that a document does exist relating a conversation between President George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair wherein Bush expressed his desire to bomb the HQ of an Arab News network.  Indeed, the British government is now prosecuting media organizations for revealing its contents.  The only question remaining seems to be whether he was 'just joking'.  Haha Ha ha... :(

Flashback to another winger wingnut extraordinaire fantasizing just joking about the bombing of the free press:


"My only regret with Timothy McVeigh is he did not go to the New York Times Building." -- New York Observer Aug. 20, 2002

I submit to you, the key difference between Coulter and Bush?  Coulter does not have the means to carry out her fantasy while George W. Bush, to the eternal shame of Scalia and cohorts, does:


A US missile hit the Baghdad offices of Al-Jazeera television early today, wounding a cameraman and leaving a correspondent missing, the Qatar-based Arabic news network said.

The station aired footage of the cameraman being taking away for treatment in a car belonging to rival network Abu Dhabi television.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
