Once again, I acknowledge that this story has received very little play in the U.S. corporate media. However, I don’t think anyone should discount the shitstorm that this is causing, both with our allies overseas (UK), and in the Arab world. Scottie Boy can characterize the charges as “absurd”, and not worthy of comment, but rest assured that George Bush’s apparent desire to bomb Arab news network Al-Jazeera’s headquarters in Qatar is big news everywhere else in the world but the U.S.

Here’s some links worthy of your attention:

And, from the U.S. corporate media enablers? The usual chirping crickets.
