...but saying that blowing up news stations that disagree with you is fine and dandy is not going to help the cause of democracy much. Whether by Bush's friends, or by the man himself.
Even Putin just arrested them.
Then again, the fact that Blair made talking about the whole thing a violation of the Official Secrets Act doesn't help much, either. Free tip to Mr. Blair: doing that is going to make it sound, well, official, and you don't want to do that when it's Bush saying "let's blow up journalists who don't toe the line!"
